    Video Games. Specifically first person shooters. I call it my "active sensing" because I do have to actively make sure I'm being as observant as possible. I play Call of Duty 4 all the time, and in the summers I play a lot of Paintball and have found my abilities to detect change in my environment are very heightened. Granted, it's very specific in how I do "sense" as I think I use my intuition to establish a mood, atmosphere or print in how my environment [or video game map] "should" be, then wait for a sensory trigger to disturb that image and that's how I'll notice something.

    Granted, I'm still naturally oblivious to the world around me if I'm not actively putting energy into making sure I'm perceptive. Just the other day I put two socks on the same foot, put my shoes on, and drove all the way to school before I figured out why my left foot felt funny.

    draw, paint. an excellent exercise of observation. see how photorealistic you can make something.

    Play sports, go out and do physical things. Go kayaking. Do things that force your attention to the present. Things like bike riding might not count, because you can easily zone out and get in your head while riding, it doesn't require 100% attention.

    A stupid question: HOW?

    How to pay attention? Or rather how to maintain the attention? If I focus on something, then I'm okay, but when I don't actively do so, I crash into things, misplace items, fall down a cliff?

    It's not automatic... and probably wouldn't ever be automatic.

    sports is a very good suggestion. nothing quite like getting a ball to the face to keep you focused.

    Go on a killing spree. It's totally living in the moment.

    Ride down a mountain with no brakes. Try zoning out then.

    This is the main reason I hate tether ball, seriously how long does it take for the ball to make its circle, I zone out and never see it comming, but it happens, every time.


    These are great suggestions everyone.
