Stop for a moment. Are you here right now?
Is your focus on the words in front of you? Or is it roaming elsewhere, to the past or future, to a worry, to your to-do list, or to your phone?
The good news: There's nothing wrong with you - your brain isn't broken. The human brain was built to be distractible.
The even better news: You can train your brain to pay attention more effectively.
Acclaimed neuroscientist Dr Amishi Jha has dedicated her life's work to understanding the science of attention at every level - from brain imaging studies in the lab to field testing soldiers, firefighters and athletes. Her mission has been to scientifically determine how we can harness the full power of our attention to better meet all that life demands. In Peak Mind, Dr Jha expertly guides readers through fascinating research, debunking common assumptions about focus and attention, and offers remarkably easy-to-adapt flexible twelve minute-a-day exercises to lift the mental fog, declutter the mind, and strengthen focus so that you can experience more of your life.

An inspiring book. Amishi Jha - internationally acclaimed expert on the new science of attention, mindfulness and the brain - shows beyond doubt that mental fitness is as important as physical fitness for human flourishing. This book is for all whose attention is hijacked when they least want it to be - everyone. It becomes urgent for those who have other people's lives in their hands, whether you are a parent or carer, a firefighter or surgeon or in the military. With gentle humour and (often surprising) examples she reveals how and why training in mindful awareness changes the brain's attentional systems, and how the capacity to be attentive is not a "soft skill", but is the strong and precious foundation of everything you want to be and do in your life
