It’s common to catch yourself multitasking during the day. Checking email while eating breakfast. Calling clients while reading a report. Making a quick grocery list in your afternoon meeting. It may seem like the only way to fit everything in is to multitask. But when you multitask, your brain has to switch back and forth between the tasks you’re doing. This can actually slow you down. And it may lead to mistakes. Plus, it can be stressful. Try, instead, to do one thing at a time today. Focus fully on each task in turn. You may find that you get more done and feel more relaxed as well.
