How multitasking-induced stress impacts our brains

While conventional wisdom teaches us that multitasking makes us more efficient, research suggests that we’re incapable of efficiently managing more than two tasks at a time. Take a look at this amazing infographic on how multitasking induced stress impacts our brains.

Here are some of the findings in brief:

  • Our daily consumption of media has more than doubled in the last 50 years from 5 hours to 12 hours.
  • The average computer user checks 40 websites a day, switching between programs 36 times an hour.
  • 61% of adults admit to being addicted to the internet.
  • Excessive internet use may lead to the atrophy of grey matter and impact memory, goal-setting, and decision making.
