From the constant pull of technology to the 24-hour news cycle to the overwhelming demands of work, our ability to concentrate is being strained as never before. We're all suffering from a collective attention deficit disorder that is leaving us feeling scattered, overwhelmed, and anxious - yet unable to resist distractions like emails, Zoom calls, or new texts or notifications.
