Continuous Partial Attention

From a link on Scoble's blog...

I don't really have the appropriate attention to read this article, but it looks interesting!

In a 24/7, always-on world, continuous partial attention used as our dominant attention mode contributes to a feeling of overwhelm, over-stimulation and to a sense of being unfulfilled.

BREATHE. Notice what happens to your breath as you pull down and check your email or vmail. Most of us hold our breath. Some of us tighten our upper body. If we're aware of what we're doing and we are able to manage our breath -- that is, keep breathing -- the stress response is minimized.

I hope breathing will really minimize my stress, but I won't hold my breath...
