Managing stress is all about taking charge taking charge of your thoughts your emotions your schedule your environment and the way you deal with problems To me although very challenging at times the ultimate goal is a balanced life with time for work relationships relaxation and fun plus the resilience to hold up under pressure and meet challenges head on But more importantly attention management is one of the most important skills we should try master in life If we manage our attention well it will give us tremendous success Like money attention is a limited resource We have only a limited amount of it we can spend and we may run out of it LOL Sounds like a marriage vow but the more we pay attention to something the more we will achieve for better or for WOI SC Attention is the quotprocess of focusing conscious awareness providing heightened sensitivity to a limited range of experience requiring more extensive information processingquot Kowalski westen 2005 Selection or filtering is a way that people protect limited attention resources selection is when we focus on relevant sensory information usually relevant to our goalsand those are the thoughts and feelings that we focus onIt is basically a filtering process were only important information gets through For example if I were in a crowded room with all kinds of noise around me but only focusing one person There is also selective inattention This is refusing to focus on information that may be emotionally upsetting to you Then there is divide attention This is dividing your attention between two complex tasks This happens sometimes when we are cleaning the house and trying to listen for our childrenor to our husbands Schema is quotintegrated patterns of knowledge stored in memory that organizes information and guides the acquisitions of new informationquot Kowalaski westen 2005 Basically what this is saying is the it is schemas that decide which information is relevantin attention enough to get through to memory
