I thought this article was so interesting it was worth sharing.

Every status update you read on Facebook, every tweet or text message you get from a friend, is competing for resources in your brain with important things like whether to put your savings in stocks or bonds, where you left your passport or how best to reconcile with a close friend you just had an argument with.

If you want to be more productive and creative, and to have more energy, the science dictates that you should partition your day into project periods. Your social networking should be done during a designated time, not as constant interruptions to your day.

Well it certainly makes sense. I should probably limit my SI time this way too though

Well, the idea is that "interruptions" are things that drag you out of what you're doing. So social networking done deliberately is not so bad compared to having your notifications on and constantly getting pinged by email and so on.

The article also talks about taking real vacations where your brain can recharge.
