Why You Should Avoid Multitasking

Multitasking is a subject that divides people.

Some think multitasking is very good while others say it’s bad. What do you think?

Personally, I think multitasking should be avoided at all cost.

Here are my 6 reasons why you should avoid multitasking.

1. It Slows You Down

Multitasking makes you feel like you are doing many tasks at a given time.

This will make you think that you are actually saving time but if you look at it a bit closer, you will see that you are actually losing time by multitasking.

When you are multitasking you are bound to make mistakes this in turn will slow your productivity.

Your efficiency levels will drop this may result in you having to do the task again.

2. Loss Of Focus

When you are multitasking it’s easy to get distracted and start another task when are in the middle of doing other tasks.

Multitasking makes it easy to lose focus.

Each time you start a new task whilst in the middle of another and decide to do both tasks together you will decrease your attention span on both tasks at hand.

3. Bad For Relationships

When you are engaged in a conversation it’s a good idea to limit multitasking.

Imagine you are in a conversation, say with your spouse and in the middle of the conversation your spouse pulls up their mobile phone and are busy texting someone on the phone how would you feel?

Multitasking can destroy relationships it’s a good idea to pay attention when you are in a conversation.

4. Can Be Dangerous

Multitasking can make you loss awareness of the dangers of your surroundings.

Each year many people are killed and injured in road accidents around the world because of people who chose to multitask by using their mobile phones whilst driving their car.

There are also predestines who use their mobile phones whilst they are crossing a busy road and this too can end up in death and injury.

5.  Memory Loss

By multitasking you are putting your brain under pressure, you are forcing it to remember many things at once.

Solve problems and at the same time handle other thoughts you might be having too much for the brain.

The brain is not designed to work under that much of pressure and at some point, it will freeze and you start to forget things because you have been pushing it too much.

6 Cause Anxiety And Stress.

When you are multitasking you are putting a lot of pressure on yourself thereby raising your stress and anxiety levels up.

Over to you…

Are you good or bad at multitasking?
