Definition ?
Multitasking, in a human context, is the practice of doing multiple things simultaneously, such as editing a document or responding to email while attending a teleconference.




The concept of multitasking began in a computing context. Computer multitasking, similarly to human multitasking, refers to performing multiple tasks at the same time. In a computer, multitasking refers to things like running more than application simultaneously.










Effects of multitasking

Attempting to perform too many activities at one time can cause your stress levels to increase. Stress can lead to burnout, employee absences, and disability claims at work. Anxiety associated with multitasking at the office can reduce productivity and negatively impact a company's profits, especially a small business with few employees.

When the office environment is too fast-paced for employees to perform their job functions properly, it can hurt morale and cause higher turnover, which is costly to many companies. Turning off unnecessary electronics and allowing calls to roll to voice mail helps you feel that you have control over your environment and can finish the task at hand.
Multitasking can lead to over-stimulation of your brain function. If you are working on a project or assignment and you are constantly interrupted by coworkers, phone calls, or customers, you risk forgetting details required to comprehensively finish the task.

By having too much information inundate you at the same time, your brain cannot differentiate between what is important and what isn't, negatively affecting your memory.

A 2009 study by Clifford Nass, Ph.D., and others at Stanford University shows that participants who multitask the most are distracted by unimportant information that is stored in their short-term memory.
Lack of Focus
When working on several tasks as once, such as talking on the phone, checking your email and writing a report, you can lose the focus required to adequately complete one item.

Too many distractions break your concentration, which requires more time to come back to one task, find where you left off, and try to recreate your thought pattern.

In their book, "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Mindfulness," Anne Ihnen and Carolyn Flynn discuss the bad effect of multitasking that does not allow your brain to rest between tasks, which wastes time in refocusing on the most important duty that must be performed.

Make the decision:
Make the conscious decision to do a task. Say to yourself, “I am doing X now.” Repeat the statement each time that you feel yourself straying from the original goal and intention. This trains your brain to cut the extraneous and get to work.

Avoid internal distractions:
When a job is boring but necessary, our minds will do everything possible to distract from it. They will push you to become more interested with email or videos. When you feel yourself turning toward something easier, repeat your personal mantra to get back on track. Pride comes upon completion.

Limit the distractions:
Tell your coworkers when you are busy so they will leave you alone. Post set hours for your availability, letting them speak with you about issues or challenges during those times. Keep yourself attached to the seat until the job is done. Reward yourself with that personal phone call or cup of coffee instead of breaking off for every individual desire.
