6 Multitasking Myths

6 Multitasking Myths

As Americans, we pride ourselves on our ability to multitask. Smartphones and technology have made this even more prevalent. We can reply to emails while in the bathroom. We can cook dinner while clean the kitchen while doing research for our next Amazon purchase. We try to hold multiple conversations at once. Here’s one that I see all too often that I BEG you to not do: drive and be on our phones.

We are, in fact, expected to multitask constantly.  Have you ever seen a job posting that doesn’t specifically request the ability to multitask?

Women and Intermittent Fasting

Women and Intermittent Fasting

We found this great article from Marks's Daily Apple. While intermittent fasting is something that is commonly talked about, the different effects on men vs women isn't as often discussed, even though the differences are vast. 

"The blank slate hypothesis has fallen. Everyone comes into this world imbued with attributes, characteristics, and predilections that are uniquely theirs. We’re all humans, but we’re a diverse bunch, and that makes it interesting. And though it also makes giving cookie cutter health advice impossible, I just take that as an opportunity to stand out from the crowd and provide actionable advice that genuinely helps real people.
