This post may be better suited for a Monday morning, but I can’t help but mention a few new sites I read about in Real Simple last month that help avoid web surfing during work hours.

So if you can’t seem to get yourself off of Facebook, Twitter, Gilt, or Google Reader (my personal vice), check out these sites below and see if they might help you focus a bit more during office hours.

Freedom.com ($10) macfreedom.com

This will stop you from going on the internet entirely for a specific amount of time. (There is a trial version available.)

RescueTime (free) rescuetime.com

This site tracks your online time and provides charts about where you spend your minutes on the web. I’m guessing that this one is kind of the Mint.com of time management online.

LeechBlock (free) addons.mozzilla.org

Here you can block specific sites online for a specified amount of time or forever. (On Firefox.)

As I mentioned, this might not be the thing you’re interested in knowing about on a sunny Friday afternoon. But come Monday morning, they may be handy new tools to keep the distractions at bay.
