A lot of people are proud of that they can do more than one thing at the same time. However, The health magazine of the United States recently points out that the brain damaged if they do this.

Brain cognitive and behavioral lab director David of the university of Michigan says a number of studies have suggested that the human brain is always constantly switching among different tasks, but they usually are unable to complete the multiple tasks. When people are walking or chewing gum, they don't need to pay much attention or concentration, their brain will automatically switch to making a phone call, driving or other important tasks. The studies have also confirmed that when doing multiple tasks simultaneously, the process of each task will be reduced and work efficiency will be significantly lowered. Psychology professor Adam Giza in the University of California, Los Angeles says that a number of tasks going simultaneously will have negative impacts on one's memory and attention. Computers, mobile phones and other electronic products of popularity will damage people's attention in each increasing day.

Finally, Dr. Myers concludes that, "multitasking" state which is easy to make people exert a lots of efforts to complete each task. In the long run, it is easy to cause pressure accumulation, brain information processing ability reduction, hence cause anxiety and depression.
