  1. The 46.9% mind wandering number is shocking, but not surprising. I’ve seen a couple studies over the past few years on the matter, such as the 2007 University of North Carolina at Greensboro study with its number of around 30%. The entire matter is shocking, because those ranges are for NORMAL brains, not taking into account those who suffer from ADHD. These are folks who are driving around in automobiles, operating aircraft, working on medical staffs, driving public transit, and cooking our meals in restaurants. This is why brain training is so important; why learning to get control of one’s attention can literally transform one’s life experience. Thanks for the update regarding the great article.
