FOCUS & PERFORMANCE - The Myth of Multitasking
When you’re busy and stressed, it’s tempting to tackle several of the tasks on your to-do list at the same time. It seems like you should make more headway by doing that. In fact, it has the opposite effect. You’re less efficient and you make more mistakes. Multi-tasking actually wastes precious time. It overloads the brain, which causes more mistakes, negatively affects communication, makes people less productive & increases stress levels.

‘Our team at Good Shepherd Microfinance became more centred, focused and connected after participating in Liz's Health Enhancement for Living program in 2012. Significant improvements in holistic wellbeing and health has resulted from Liz's outstanding care and tailored way of working with us. Stress is understood and channelled positively, productivity is up, people relate well with each other, and our clients, and are generally happier, more centred and calm. We are making this wonderful program available to many more people in our team in 2013 after word quickly spread about how good and effective this was in enhancing personal wellbeing.’
