Barbaric Tip of the Week is a weekly series whose main purpose is to share tiny bits of knowledge that I find specially useful and interesting.
Dozens of studies have demonstrated that multitasking is detrimental to your productivity, can be a source of stress and has adverse effects in your life expectancy . I have found, however, with arduous experimentation that I can do multitasking with negligible effects in one of these two cases: I can juggle two oranges at the same time with two hands, and, less impressive yet worthy of notice, I can listen to podcasts or audio books while commuting to work, training at the gym or performing boring, repetitive tasks such as clothe laundering, dish washing and the like.
Browsing a little bit over the episode list is enough to water your mouth. Don’t hesitate! Go and start multitasking! Add more value to your laundry! Yey!
