As marketers, the internet has become an essential part of our daily lives. Whether we’re preparing an email campaign, tweeting, or simply checking our email, it is always there. Because the line between work and play is often blurry, it can be hard to set boundaries. You often find yourself from doing serious research for a corporate blog post to suddenly laughing at an awesome (but most likely pointless) BuzzFeed quiz. Or maybe it becomes almost impossible to resist the impulse to check your Facebook feed every few minutes.

However, we know it’s so much more satisfying to make work time the time for work, and random browsing time the time for play. For our latest visual we have compiled advice from the experts on how to increase your online attention span, stay focused, and ultimately become way more productive. Take a look!
