The Hazards of Multitasking

While we think the ability to multitask is a magnificent plus, it advised that we should do less of it as studies are on-going to determine how badly it affects the brain.

Digital revolution has caused the world to multitask, but it is impairing our thinking skills; this is an amazing phenomenon in youngsters.

The average human brain is wired to focus at one thing at a time; tasking it to do more, would only put pressure on its cognitive processing, thus reducing efficiency and performance.

Although multitasking may be required at times, it should not be common practice when avoidable. Oftentimes the other task is not so important. Such tasks like talking while driving - and there are people who still want to answer the other phone, all at the same time.

However, studies by U.K psychologists have proven that women are better at multitasking than men. Men are slower, and are not as organized as women and have less capacity to switch between tasks.

To be best at the most crucial things require focus and absolute attention; learn to do one thing at a time, apportion time to it and move on to the next thing.

Smart phone and apps have made possible for too many things seeking your attention; there is the email, sms, whatsapp, bbm, we chat, facebook, instagram, snap chat, and so many other messages and alerts waiting for response. Toggling between them throughout the day is time, brain, and effort consuming!

Extreme cases of multitasking under very stressful conditions may lead the body to a breakdown, characterized by headaches and tiredness.

Get organized, streamline the smart phone apps and set aside unimportant tasks for when it is more convenient.
