Neil deGrasse Tyson on the Myth of Multitasking HR Break Room

    • Business

Stress has a sneaky way of turning into burnout before we can recognize the symptoms and take steps to protect our mental wellness. Can cutting-edge science help us regain some of our lost calm?
 
For that answer, we turned to a leading scientist.
 
Astrophysicist, author and all-around science ambassador Neil deGrasse Tyson, Ph.D., visits the HR Break Room® to take on the myth of multitasking. Multitasking can lower productivity, increase the amount of time needed to complete a task, create stress and lead to burnout. We often think of multitasking within the context of work; however, this applies to all areas of life.

Tyson discusses ways to identify the onset of burnout and proven strategies for reducing stress and recovering the ability to think clearly and effectively.
