You Choose: Disorder or "Attentional Control"

Pilates Basics Mat Class - All Levels

"The mind’s normal condition is disorder, with random thoughts, perceptions and sensations all competing for attention, according to Sabine Kastner, MD, PhD, of Princeton University’s Center for the Study of Brain, Mind and Behavior. Adults usually manage to turn this chaos into reasonable order by exerting “attentional control” (as it’s known scientifically) to filter out some things and focus on others—in other words, by concentrating."
