Maggie Jackson is the author of "Distracted: The Erosion of Attention and the Coming Dark Age." She joins Dr. Hallowell on Distraction this week to discuss a very real problem a growing number of us face: lack of focus.

For years, people thought the constant attention we give our smartphones, tablets, video games and computers might be negatively impacting our health. Now the science is in, and they're robbing us of our focus, memory, sleep and more, both in the short and long term.

Maggie gives us insights on how our modern world affects our health plus tips for keeping it under control.
