multitasking

To all those who take pride in multitasking, a public service announcement:

Not only has multitasking been repeatedly proven to make you less productive, but over time, doing multiple things at once also physically shrinks parts of your brain.

Yep. Your brain. The affected areas are linked with emotional control, decision making, empathy, and responding appropriately to rewards. Nice, eh?

Just say NO to shrinkage! 🙂
