Does multi-tasking really work?
By TGFM Date Published: June 28, 2021
Overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), especially those who have adjusted to the work culture in this expat city, have become accustomed to multi-tasking to get as many workloads done as possible.
But does it really work?
Anne Bernadette D. Bonita, an expert in memory improvement who has represented the Philippines in various memory sports competitions, thinks otherwise. She actually recommends not to do it.
“Avoid multitasking,” Bonita said. “Focusing on one thing at a time actually makes you more efficient. When you try to do several tasks at the same time, it prevents you from concentrating well on each task. This can result to making mistakes or errors along the way,” she further explained.
Bonita, who recently gave a lecture entitled, “Sharpen Your Memory: Unlock Your Brain’s Hidden Potential” at the ongoing 45-minute free Zoom weekly live stream series dubbed, “Opportunity for Filipino Workers” (OFF Workers), said one instead needs to be focused on the task at hand and do it one at a time
Meantime, most OFWs also plan for early retirement.
To this end, Bonita, president of the Philippine Mind Sports Association and Founder of The Brain Republic Inc., advised that they keep their mind working even while on retirement – solving crossword puzzles can help, she said.
“Do not dream of early retirement, where you will just completely relax for the most part of your day,” Bonita said.
“It can actually be counterproductive and may cause immediate mental deterioration. You can train your brain by exercising it just like any other muscle in your body.
“Older people can keep their mind healthier by doing physical exercises, engaging in business or activities that will require them to think or analyze, or even by solving puzzles or brain games. In giving it extra protection, just remember the saying ‘Use it or Lose it,’” she said.
