I have used the computer time logging app RescueTime with modest success for some time now. However - and this can also be a general question, even though it’s about RescueTime in particular - I am consistently a little demoralized that RescueTime treats lunch as distracted time. I mean, I know lunch is distracted time because I am usually not working during it. I want to take some time to get away from my desk, breathe, take a little walk, or run errands. But as far as I can find, RescueTime allows either lunch as distracted time, or lunch as some kind of productive work time or meeting, which it really isn’t either.
I just wonder whether to just ignore lunch and not log that time at all, or whether to continue to see my productivity number drop by a lot when the hour of lunch is added in. How do you treat lunch break time when assessing how productive you are?
Thanks for any help!
