Everyone knows we’re not supposed to multitask while driving, but do you know why? Refraining from texting, changing the radio, or talking to other people in the car isn’t just cautionary advice from your parents and teachers. It turns out your brain literally can’t focus on too much at once.
Our brain is not wired to pay attention to more than one complex task at a time, what we’re actually doing when we think we’re multitasking is quickly shifting our focus from one activity to another so while our mind is engaged in applying makeup, arguing with back seat driver, fumbling for a water bottle or a conversation, we are not focusing on anything in a proper way.
Avoid Multitasking and stay focused.
