I've read something in Grazia last week that made sense and today I am going to put it into practice. The theory, as far as I remember it, is that men tend to think of a task at a time, whilst women are more inclined to look at the bigger picture and then trying to juggle it all.
This article went as far as saying that multi-tasking is not actually all that good as it leads to more anxiety, we should do it the men way and uni-task. I believe that there is a lot of truth in it. My brain is forever racing about 'the bigger picture' and it is all stressing me out.
Today I am going to make an actual list, not a mental list, as I usually do. I am going to prioritise tasks and give each 15 minutes of undivided attention. I am going to train my brain not to think of anything else for those 15 minutes and see if I will actually accomplish more by the end of the day and ideally, so the theory goes, with less stress.
What do you think? Do we women make it harder on ourselves whilst men's uni-tasking makes them less stressed out? I will let you know how it goes.
