Seniors: Dealing with Distractions and Distortions

May 30th, 2011 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

Enabling yourself to avoid the influence of distractions and distortions means being alert enough to know what they are and to identify effective means for stamping them out of your own daily life. Frankly, distractions and distortions are designed to keep us from being up to speed on the real issues and concerns which have major influence in our lives. If we are invested in keeping up with the innane and stupid, we will spend less of our time and attention knowing what is really going on.

The reason National Enquirer or other pulp magazines sell so well at the grocery check out is that it distracts you while waiting to pay your bill. Perhaps, you will drop a copy in your cart, pick up some candy or gum or other assorted useless items, thus justifying why so much of that stuff is within easy reach, just before you are checked out.
