    The Weather Bunny...

    Down here in Miami, Florida, on one of our local TV stations (WSVN) they recently promoted this cute, perky young woman named Vivian Gonzalez to do the weather... she is in fact a trained meteorologist, aside from just being pretty to look at, although previously, I understand...

    Guy Winch, TED talk about emotional first aid.

    Rumination is a massive contributor to depression. Thinking deeply about negative things that happen in our lives, going over them over again and again. To break that, all it takes is a 2 minute distraction. It's that easy. But make it a good one, creative or looking at photo...

    I am possibly the most easily distracted person

    I know. It has gotten to the point where I literally spent two hours trying to win at that "KILL THE BUG" advertisement. You probably don't even know what that it. I've asked my friends and they don't know, but then again, that's probably because they haven't ever spent two...

    One of my big issues in life is I have the kind

    of mind that flips straight from one thing to another often spending ages looking at things, googling around various websites anything other than what it was I was meant to and so just not completing set tasks. It's isn't helped by my tendency to only pursue fun things so if...

    My Active Mind

    I could be doing anything, but suddenly I remember funny things and start smiling. I might even think of a song randomly and start playing it in my head. I might even just think about completely weird, random ideas. I also bring these things up myself to help me feel less...

    Distraction And I

    Have a toxic relationship. We're the worst best friends. We love each other, fight with each other, make up unknowingly and the cycle continues. It's too controlling, i'm too addicted to it to let go. It eats my brains and dampens my senses and i bite the dust and dampen my...

    Timed Out

    I’ve got this song written. In fact, no, currently I have about 89% of a song.  My upload has stalled. B’Jeeezus, you’d have thought it was Bohemian Rhapsody or something, not just a bloke banging an acoustic guitar and having a bit of a wail.  I thought I had it earlier...

    Easily Distracted - Far Too Easily

    I mean right now I'm supposed to be working,

    but I just get distracted with other fun things, like EP. It's even worse when A pretty girl passes by, I just have to look. I've almost gotten into accidents and such just by "rubber necking". It sucks, you show me something shiny and I'm looking at that instead of what I'm...

    I can do up to 6 things at the same time. I can't only focus on one task. And that's why it takes me so long to finish things.

    No, it's not my age causing this problem.

    I've been like this for years. I get bored and lose my concentration. Some times it's embarrassing. I need a rewind App for my brain.
