Daylight Savings Time

Waking up to a new circadian regime under Daylight Savings Time sends your brain into a disoriented frenzy, and the effects aren't over by Sunday night. A study in the Journal of Applied Psychology culled six years of Google search data to show that people who lose sleep during DST show poorer self-control at work the following Monday, leading to a spike in surfing nonbusiness-related websites.

Although researchers worry about the "potentially staggering" productivity losses, another study backs up idle Internet time, saying that "a moderate amount of mindless Web surfing actually makes workers more productive." Looks like that midday detour to msnNow might prove even better than exercise to get your mind back in the game.
