I've always struggled with this--sometimes I feel like I just can't focus on my work, or feel too lonely and distracted and need a change. But if I'm on a deadline, I'm certainly able to put those feelings aside and power through. Then I feel guilty that I don't "power through" all the time to be maximally productive. So, is there any "objective" way to determine how much break time (e.g., screwing around on "Ask Mefi") one truly needs?
