The Dangers of Multitasking
We’re all beyond busy these days. Whether we’re texting while we’re waiting in line, or decluttering and cleaning the house at the same time, doing it constantly can take a toll on us in a number of ways. Here, Dr. Amit Sood, author of The Mayo Clinic Guide to Stress-free Living, lists the main drawbacks to multitasking:
Increased error risk
Impaired ability to do any task well
Hindering of deeper experiences
At the same time, Sood says, multitasking is inevitable these days. Doing it only when it’s appropriate can help you avoid the negative consequences.
