Are you productive at work?

I love the Simple List in Real Simple Magazine. They always have such helpful reminders. Last year, I clipped this statistic and I wonder if it's really true:

New Technology, Work and Employment did a study that showed  that workers are 9% more productive if they take short internet breaks (say to check Facebook or read the news) than employees that just work work work through the day. The psychologist that did the study summarized that online breaks restore mental capacity which boosts effectiveness.

What do you think?
