Is ADD a way of life for you? Is multi-tasking short speak for short attention span? Do you ever feel like you spend most of your life in a daydream? Well, sit down, close your eyes, and repeat after yourself any mantra you choose because scientists have now proven that meditation increases attention span.

Sixty volunteers — all of whom had at least a three to five day introduction to mediation before — were selected for the research and underwent a three month retreat where they studied mediation in Colorado with B. Alan Wallace, one of the study’s co-authors and a mediation teacher and Buddhist scholar. At various points, the participants were asked to complete challenging 30-minute long tasks on a computer that measure how well they could make fine visual distinctions and sustain visual focus.

“Because this task is so boring and yet it is also very neutral, it’s kind of a perfect index of meditation training,” says MacLean. “People may think meditation is something that makes you feel good and going on a meditation retreat is like going on vacation, and you get to be at peace with yourself. That’s what people think until they try it. Then you realize how challenging it is to just sit and observe something without being distracted.”
