As we live in a fast-paced society many of us see multitasking as an essential skill to cope with the demands of everyday life.

While it may seem like multi-tasking allows you to cheat the system and get a lot of things done at once, we actually end up working slower producing lower quality work due to the lack of attention.

Follow this five-minute mediation practise withe Neil Seligman and take time out of our busy schedule to optimise focus and productivity.

A study by Moore and Malinowski revealed that our attention span is positively related to meditation practice and levels of mindfulness. As participants who mediated performed significantly better than those who did not on all measures of attention.
