Time trap #1: Technology interruptions break our hours into confetti

Time confetti: the little bits of seconds and minutes lost to unproductive multitasking. Each bit alone is not very bad, but all add up to something more pernicious.

Time confetti fragments an hour of leisure to smaller chunks (5-6 minutes long).

It takes time to cognitively recover from shifting our minds from the present to a stress-inducing activity. Time confetti makes us feel even more time impoverished than we actually are.
