When we have too many things on our mind, it can cause our brains to go into overdrive. And although all those open tabs may not feel like much, they’re still at the back of our mind, taking up extra energy that a lot of us just don’t have.
As Rana Mafee, a neurologist at Case Integrative Health told HuffPost, “Bouncing from tab to tab gives your ego the misconception you’re getting an incredible amount of work done. In reality, you’re not fully processing anything you’re trying to efficiently consume.”
If you tend to keep a lot of unnecessary tabs open, try to make it a habit to close the ones you’re not currently using. You already have enough on your mind, don’t let all of those extra tabs drain you even further.
