How does the way we use our minds affect how we live our lives day-to-day? Current research is showing what Buddhist practitioners discover along the way: the way we use our minds physically changes our brains. Our modern culture's worship of multitasking, of being constantly "plugged in,"is affecting how we pay attention to our lives. If we can't focus on what's right in front of us, where does that leave our lives? Most poignantly, how can we help others if we're always somewhere else?
