Multitasking

WHEN WE CAN MULTITASK

  1. A few small habitual tasks. - listing music and running or cleaning home etc.
  2. A task that needs most of our focus, as well as, a habitual task. - listening to a podcast or audiobook while doing maintenance tasks, or playing a simple, repetitive video game on a phone while listening to an audiobook.

Except these we should never try to multitask. Then we only switch task rapidly which creates attention residue, for that it takes 50% more time for the next task.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
