Agar.io is a massively multiplayer action game. Players control a cell in a map representing a petri dish; the goal is to gain as much mass as possible by swallowing smaller cells without being swallowed by bigger ones. You can make your own cell and name - tip: if you make your name Australia, your cell has an Australian flag.

Caution: This game is addictive. It can cause extended hours of procrastination & un-business related action. #sorrynotsorry

4. Sleep Calculator

web-blinds.com / Via lifehack.org

What time do you go to bed? But, what time should you go to bed?

This site emphasizes how getting a good night's sleep is about more than simply going to bed early - it's about waking up at the right time too. This bedtime calculator can work out the best time for you to rise or go to sleep and help you potentially stick to that pattern.

Side note: This means limiting screen time, so actually hitting the hay when you say 'I'm going to bed" not getting into bed and checking the feed.
