I recently found out about a very cool desktop app. called: Focus Booster.
It’s a little gadget that sits on your desktop (you choose the location) that you set for a specific time period to work followed by a timed break. It works great! I tried it out for the first time this week and I’m amazed at how much more productive I’ve been.
I have mine set for 30 minute work sessions, followed by a 5 minute break. You can adjust to what works best for you.
There is the option to have a ticking sound for work/break sessions. I have it on for the breaks and off for the work time. At the end of either session, there is a soft bell sound to let you know it’s time to get back to work/or to get up and take a break. 😉
I have a bad habit of sitting at my computer for long periods of time, without breaks.
Also, there’s those less than productive times when I plan to visit JUST ONE MORE BLOG and that stretches into a much longer break than I had planned, from my actual work.
You can read all about the science behind the Focus Booster here.
Here’s to productivity!
And do let me know if you give Focus Booster a try and how it worked for you! 🙂
