Distractions, They're Everywhere

I was thinking (and that's sometimes a good thing) that perhaps people of today have so much ADD due to our distractions. Growing up I had distractions like everyone else but not like the ones we have today. We had a TV with three stations until I was in high school, a stereo and a telephone. Now I'm not counting other life distractions like school, etc. but the ones that are around you 24/7.

Kids and adults of today have cable with hundreds of channels, access to movies at home, cell phones, iPods, computers, tablets, etc.

Where I used to be able to read a book while watching TV or listening to the radio, now we have a hundred other distractions to keep you occupied. Look at the effect social networking has on your ability to focus, or at least my ability to focus.

I'm just saying that perhaps all of the extras that are now a part of our lives may contribute to how we are unable to focus on certain things as easily as before. Food for thought, anyway.

Yes I totally agree with you Kim,matter of fact even our pets are a distraction. However, I believe they are a healthy one. Cool new blog, I will be distracted by it (I mean watching it).
