S4 E8: A Nuanced Discussion About Focus and Attention w/ Dr. Gloria Mark
On any given day we may hear about the benefits of honing attention, paying attention, and being focused. Oftentimes, these comments are related to productivity, learning, or engagement at work, school, or in other aspects of life. However, how often do we discuss and define what attention means? Do we have an awareness of what may get in the way of our attention?
Attention and focus can be fleeting experiences that are influenced by so many different factors in life, especially technology. In this episode, Alexis & Jerry are joined by the research scientist and psychologist, Dr. Gloria Mark. In her recent book, Attention Span: A Groundbreaking Way to Restore Balance, Happiness and Productivity, Dr. Mark chronicles the numerous research studies and work she has conducted on attention in an engaging and helpful way. In this discussion we tackle topics of multitasking, kinetic attention, the emotion and stress related to attention, and so much more.

Be curious. Be Open. Be well.
The ReidConnect-Ed Podcast is hosted by Alexis Reid and Dr. Gerald Reid, produced by Cyber Sound Studios, and original music is written and recorded by Gerald Reid.
