Neuroscientist Adam Gazzaley says the human mind isn’t built for multitasking–but we do it anyway.
When we’re working consciously, we cannot multitask. It’s that simple – our brains can’t handle that. If we’re unconscious, about 93% of the time, we can multitask! But do we want to?
Gazzaley says: Human brains aren’t built to handle constant multitasking (on tech devices), and the constant task-switching of modern work life has negative effects.
Here are a few of Gazzaley’s best pieces of advice.
- Know your limits.
- Take frequent breaks.
- Set expectations.
