My arms pumped. My Fitbit recorded. Time saving schemes can give one false hope to "do it all." I began to read the first few paragraphs of my homework,a chapter devoted to Reading Comprehension. (You will discover that this topic is ironic.) I glanced at my Fitbit app and quickly calculated the number of remaining steps and found myself re-reading the first few paragraphs of my homework. Distracted and perplexed, I had no idea what I had just read while I walked. I stood still, finger to text and began to read aloud. As I read further and further into the text, I began to walk in place again only to stop a few moments later having not absorbed any of the reading. The allure for saving time by reading and walking simultaneously was ineffective.
Completing tasks mindfully, one at a time is the only way to tackle any "To Do List". Multi-tasking I was reminded again is highly over-rated.
