Come to the calm of a well functioning brain.
. The research is showing us that multitasking is actually the wrong way to go. We have became so dependent on emails, cell phones, and other electronic devices that our overworked brain is actually getting rewired and not in a good way.
The researchers at the University of Michigan have found that when we multitask we are actually forcing the brain to refocus each time that we bounce from the email to our phone and run into the telephone pole because we where somewhere else. This can cause a reduction in productivity by 40 percent. And it also reduces the quality of our work.
The researchers at the University of Stanford have also found that your brain rewires with multitasking, which can cause fractured thinking, lacks of concentration and brain fatigue.
Here are a few ideas to help you with your stress and multitasking situations.
Don't let email and text pings interrupt a task.
Delegate tasks, so that you have more time to focus on one thing at a time.
Slow down the pace.
Prioritize tasks and just do one thing at a time. Keep it simple, the brain likes that.
Find ways to be in the present moment. Breathing, sitting, all help.
Saunter to tasks and just do one at a time. Talk to others around you.
Learn to let go with walking and meditation or what ever you like to do.
LENS neurofeedback can help to calm down the brain to help you be more focused.
