Remember when you were a kid and how if your parents told you that you couldn’t do something you just wanted to do it MORE? When you take something away, that’s when you really want it. With StayFocusd, instead of losing your favorite websites, you just get a timer.
Most productivity apps and addons block time wasting websites like Facebook, Tumblr, Netflix, etc to force you to focus on whatever tasks you have to complete. With StayFocusd, it lets you access your favorite sites but the catch is you only get so much time on them a day.
You tell the addon how much time you want to spend on what sites or what kind of content you want to be exposed to and for how long. Once you’ve reached your max, that’s it, you’re locked out and it’s back to work for you. This is an easy way to limit how much time you spend on certain sites as well to help get your social media addiction under control. Well at least when you’re sitting at your desktop anyway. StayFocusd is a Chrome extension.
