Attention switching

Attention switching is the conscious and purposeful action of shifting attention from the one object to another. The inverse state of attention switching is absent-mindedness, which usually comes due to lack of proper switching from task to task. The greatest difficulty related to switching is the full involvement in the new process, without looking back to the previous. For instance, it's that difficult to fall into text editing carefully after the date with the lovey, without getting distracted by memories about the meeting.
