Information overload and multitasking
Multitasking affects our brain.
According to a recent infographic by OnlineUniversities.com, our brains “weren’t designed to handle the amount of information they’re currently processing.”
In an age where 695,000 Facebook status updates, 1,500 blog posts, and 168 million emails are sent every 60 seconds, it becomes difficult to focus and to keep from multitasking.
According to the infographic:
When the brain is faced with two tasks, the medial prefrontal cortex divides in two so each half can focus on one task. The anterior-most part of the frontal lobe enables the switch between two goals. When a third task comes into play, it becomes too much for the brain to handle at once. Consequently, accuracy drops considerably.
Designed to help humans be more productive, technology can make us feel scatterbrained and fragmented instead – as if we were everywhere and nowhere at the same time. Although the multi-tasking habit can be a tough one to break, the rewards – clearer thinking, more innovative thoughts, and higher quality work, are worth the effort. By implementing a few key strategies, we can re-define our role in the digital world – and improve nearly every aspect of our information-rich lives.
