"One study by researchers at the University of California at Irvine monitored interruptions among office workers; they found that workers took an average of twenty-five minutes to recover from interruptions such as phone calls or answering e-mail and return to their original task."

Twenty five minutes?
Jeez, and I thought I liked to find ways to procrastinate. That's crazy.
Oh, and all you people reading this damn blog in offices out there - get back to work!!!
It takes me about 2 minutes to get back into things if I'm on a call so if 25 mins is the average it means a lot of people are wasting almost a half an hour! lol
No way that study is accurate.
