If you’re like many Americans, sitting in a chair at your office for 8 hours is your typical day. There’s the mandatory breaks and lunch, but holding focus for 3 to 4 hours at a time is a struggle.
And so when you get bored, your mind wanders, and you begin to wonder “What was that score in last night’s game?” To satisfy your curiosity, you decide to take an unschedule break to quickly look at ESPN or Facebook just to see.
You check it out, and jump back to work thinking that the harmless 5-10 minute excursion was nothing. Except that your urge comes back an hour later. And the cycle starts all over again.
