Mindful Moment: Unitask!


Did you know that "multitasking" is a myth? (Read about this and then try a little test to prove it!)

When we think we're multitasking, we're actually just stressing out our brains by switching back and forth very quickly between tasks...and this makes us slower.

So as tempting as it may be to try and do two boring tasks at once, try instead to focus all of your attention on one task. You may find that the task goes more quickly, and maybe is even more enjoyable!

What do you think? Comment and let us know!

"Mindful Moments" is a series that Marianne and Katie developed as "micro-practices" with the intention of offering inspirations to pause, notice, connect, and reflect in the course of daily life. These are suggestions of ways to fold more moments of mindfulness into your day to cultivate "Being Aware & Being Kind."

If you'd like to have these in physical form, we've also made these photos into a desk set-- a deck of 31 cards, in a little bag along with an easel. You can take a look here.
