Mindfulness meditation increases attention span.
This definitive University of California scientific study is just one of an increasing number of recent studies that confirm the results of earlier studies.
See: MacLean, K, Saron, C, Wallace, B A et al  2010. “Intensive Meditation Training Improves Perceptual Discrimination and Sustained Attention”, Psychological Science, 21(6):829-39.  Online: http://pss.sagepub.com/content/early/2010/05/11/0956797610371339.abstract
