DrupalCon Amsterdam 2019: Mindless multitasking: a dummy’s guide to productivity

Sarah Wall
Imagex, Vancouver, Canada

In today’s fast-paced workplace, many people are struggling to keep up with the constant influx of information in the various tools that we use to communicate. For example, how many times have you attended a meeting while also chatting on Slack, checking your phone for texts, or responding to emails?

Did you know that multitasking is detrimental to your productivity? The more you multitask, the less you accomplish. Constant jumping around from task to task not only affects your productivity, but can affect your mental health and level of stress over time.

The mind is not capable of effectively focusing on more than one thing at once. You have the power and ability to choose a different way of working that will have you accomplishing more while feeling relaxed at the end of the day.

In this session you will learn how to:
* Tune in. Use your mind and body to be present and relieve feelings of stress and anxiety.
* Be laser-focused. Prioritize your activities and focus on what’s important.
* Glide through your day. Optimize your productivity and work with ease.

This will be an experiential workshop which you can tailor to your situation, providing you with practical tips and tricks that will make a difference in your work and personal life today.
