A survey in the UK reveals that the majority of people are distacted from their work by the internet, as well as feeling less productive. Over half of the 2,500 individuals surveyed by motivational aid site Webtrate admitted that checking their emails and social media when trying to do work revealed a worrying lack of impulse control.

Over 60% said they lost their chain of thought because they checked and responded to an email or social media alert while they were working on a report or longer piece of written work.
