Breaktime

As my eight minute timebox ends I feel myself with an itch to check Twitter. It is odd that some tasks feel "acceptable" to do while "work" is being performed. Yet my 3DS sits right next to my laptop and I would feel extremely guilty to do something that I actually want to do as I do work instead of doing something that I do not want to really do.

What creates this? What makes us think that some things are "okay" to do when we need a break from work and other things are not okay? Is this just me? I think this is something I need to reflect on more.
