Research suggests that the average office worker is only productive for about 3 hours a day.
Perhaps even more alarming, studies have found the average time it takes for a person to recover from an interruption is 23 minutes! We all know how frustrating it can be to have our workflow interrupted, but the negative effects go beyond the immediate disruption: over time, that frustration and the coping mechanisms you engage can lead to greater stress, worse productivity, and–eventually–poorer performance (“The Cost of Interrupted Work: More Speed and Stress,” UC Irvine).
