Our world is full of distractions. We strive to master multitasking. We use project management programs to help tackle our to-do lists (at work and even at home). Push notifications, originally designed to save time by "pushing" important information onto the screen without you having to unlock your phone, now (ironically) serve the opposite purpose, drawing you into apps you never planned to open. The itch to look at an alert, let alone open it, becomes nearly unavoidable. While many distractions seem to be only momentary, new research suggests that their consequences could be monumental. They may even be altering your perception and memories of reality.
