內容簡介

內容簡介 少想、多學,擁有釋放渙散注意力的強大力量多數人經常因為分心而感到憂心,分心時容易精神渙散、做白日夢,甚至做事拖拖拉拉,最後浪費太多無謂的時間。但如果現在告訴你,多數的「浪費時間」其實是一種良性的時間消耗呢?神經學家皮萊博士提到,腦內有一項神經功能就是專門作用於浪費時間而生。根據最新的腦部研究發現,再與心理學研究交叉比對,作者提出許多成功案例證實分心其實是有利於人體的身心發展。皮萊博士揭露腦內的預設網路模式只會在我們分心時運作,什麼也不做才能真正達到心神的放鬆。當腦部達到放鬆後,才能更有效進行復原與運作。過於專注反而有害,若想發揮及開發大腦,學習放下手邊的事物才是真正治癒大腦的最佳方法,也能幫助你遠離焦慮與職業倦怠期。Most of us worry about our distractibility. We zone out, daydream and procrastinate, and then chastise ourselves for wasting time. But what if most of that "wasted time" was actually time well spent? As neuroscientist Dr. Srini Pillay explains, there is a neurological imperative for why we all do these things. Drawing on the latest brain research, compelling stories from his psychological practice, and colourful examples of counterintuitive success from sports, business, education and the arts, he reveals that there is a vital default mode network in the brain that only activates when we are unfocused, "doing nothing" or letting our minds rest. And that healthy default mode network is necessary for the brain to rejuvenate and function at its best. If focus is the valuable close and narrow beam that illuminates the path directly ahead, unfocus is the equally valuable beam that reaches far and wide, enabling our peripheral vision. It is the intelligent form of letting go. Challenging traditional ideas about productivity, Dr Pillay reveals how being too focused can be detrimental, and how you can harness and exploit the power of unfocus in many different areas of your life: to enhance creativity, improve your capacity for learning and even help you overcome a general malaise or an emotional or career rut.
