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.


Coach AB Bonita Amazes the crowd with her Extreme Superhuman Memory

Coach Anne Bernadette “AB” Bonita of The Brain Republic Wows the audience, judges, and hosts of Showtime’s new segment, VERSUS. The segment showcases different talents of the challengers.

The moniker giver to her by the show is Single Belle. Coach AB Bonita’s jaw-dropping performance gave the viewers goosebumps as she memorized the numbers just by listening to it, and even performed some mathematical equations at the end.

Ms. Bonita was also the only female challenger who qualified in her batch.

Watch the video below:

Feedback from the Host and Judges to Coach AB

Vice Ganda: “Ate kanina natutuwa ako, pero ngayon natatakot na ko. Bakit ka ganyan? Alam mo Talent Contest to eh… POWERS yung meron ka.” ^_^

Judge Jerald Napoles: “Grabeh! Ate Congratulations! Natupad mo yung pangarap ko last week na sana makakita ako ng isang talento na hindi ako patutulugin or iisipin ko manlang bago ako matulog. Sobrang galing! Sobrang Kakaiba! May pagka-Superhuman ang dating… Meron kang talong “R” para sa akin. 1) Relax – relax na relax ka mula umpisa hanggang matapos ka ; 2) Ready – wala kang pakialam kung sino ang makakalaban mo ; 3) Rigorous – dahil extremely accurate ka!” 😀

Judge Roxanne Guinoo: “Bagay na bagay sayo yung Belle, kasi para ka talagang kampana, niyanig mo kaming lahat sa galing mo! Grabe, extreme yang talent mo. Maganda yung confidence mo kanina, totoo eh. May karapatan ka talagang manghamon… ang galing, ang galing mo ate!” ❤

Judge Kim Chu: “Ate, nilaro mo kami sa numbers. Kaya naman Numero Uno ang ipinakita mong talento sa amin today. Bonggang-bongga. As in shock na shock kami! Ang ganda ng pinakita mo, na-amaze kaming lahat, napanganga kami, ngayon naisara na namin. At nasabi naming THAT WAS AMAZING!” ^_^
