Next time your staff catches you reading

SKI

Magazine at the office, tell them you're engaging in "attention restoration therapy." According to a

New York Times

health blog, the keen concentration needed for complex mental tasks - like poring over spreadsheets to tease a profit out of 2009 - is known as "directed" attention. To stay sharp, your head needs downtime. One way to recharge your brain is to allow your "involuntary" attention - the kind you use when viewing beautiful natural scenes - to take over. Proving what we knew all along: Daydreaming over ski images is good for you.
