In certain parts of my day and certain parts of my work where I am able to divide my attention a little more (I typically work mostly in silence), as well as activity (washing dishes / house cleaning / painting cabinets- funny enough my hikes/ bike rides are in silence. Too much noise in my day becomes static. I mainly research / read / and write in silence. My yoga is either silence or watching a yoga video or with some soothing music and/or instruction in voice. And walks aside from my hikes are either talking with a friend or my partner or at times I have the iPod with a language works on tap more often than anything else. Every day I have some portion of my day in a variety of some music. And other times my attention is shared with video’s of things like writing/publishing/author topics of various types or Ted Talks on various topics. This afternoon after lunch, this is the line my attention goes in. The Brain, and how it works.
