Late Sociologist Warned About Multitasking’s Effect on Wellness
Are you a multitasker? Do you consider yourself a master at doing three (or more) things at once, such as checking email, watching a football game, and fixing dinner? If so, you’re not alone – our society has become an army of multitaskers. With the explosion of distractions, technology, and raised expectations for productivity in our lives, we feel compelled to do as much as possible all at once.
