How to enhance your attention span. An increasingly digital world results in an increasing number of distractions during times of concentration. And unfortunately, it doesn’t get any better the older you are. In collaboration with neuroscientist Chelsea Robertson, this instalment of Nir and Far explores why focusing and ignoring are not two sides of the same coin. Here, they reveal how to improve our ability to pay attention, remove distractions and boost our capacity to focus on one task at a time. This story was in an episode of Wake Up with Curio.
