Monotask: To do one thing at a time.
Research continues to grow suggesting that the old school of thought that multitasking is the way to get more done is NOT where it's at! Say what??
Hard to believe for those of us that are wired with type-A behaviors to go full speed ahead and do as many things as we can in an attempt to get as much done as possible! Deep breath.....................ahhhh.
A growing body of evidence shows that multitasking actually makes us less efficient, less effective, less focused, more stressed and more prone to making mistakes! Makes sense when you pause to think about it, huh?
Maintaining focus and interest on one task at a time isn't always easy, but like meditation and mindful living, it's so worth it! When we are mindful and 100% focused and present with one task, we can flow through to the next with more ease and efficiency.
So get more sh%* done right and start being more mindful as you tackle your tasks and projects. Slow down and pay attention to how you feel as you become more present. Just like any other healthy habit, to achieve overall wellness and inspired living, it's a practice. As a recovering multi-tasker and work in progress myself, I promise you'll feel and live better.
One task at a time and "One Bite At A Time!"
