Most of us try to cram way too many things into one day. So we end up checking email while we're on a conference call, eating lunch while working at our desk or even talking to our mom on our cell while we're at the gym (yes, I've seen people do it at my health club!). Although most of us realize that multitasking isn't really efficient, we can't seem to stop doing it. And, according to new research, there may be a physiological reason why. Multitasking makes us happy! Well, at least in the short term. With the advent of social media and devices that put us in touch with people 24/7, there's no shortage of opportunities to do two—or three or more—things at once. And every time we check something off of our to-do list, our brain secretes feel-good chemicals, says John Brubaker, a performance consultant, speaker and author of The Coach Approach: Success Strategies From The Locker Room To The Board Room.
