I like using Pomodoro timer on my Mac or Forest app on my phone when I'm struggling to concentrate but honestly I always find a way to get it done. Being able to work flexibly really helps with that. I can work when I'm most productive and manage my free time and breaks.
I don't use any app. I like to listen to music and fully concentrate on my tasks for the day. Don't get me wrong, I get distracted a lot, but I try to keep my phone on silent and not in my visual field.🤓
I don't use any apps. But these are my goto:
1. Gamify my to-dos for the day, especially in the afternoon when food coma starts kicking in.
2. Put on the noise cancellation headphone with no music just as a signal to everyone else.
3. DND on iphone and mac.
4. Take a walk or sit another place if too much is going on.
5. If I notice there is an internal distraction (emotional kind), I make a note and take that up in therapy next.
I use my own extension Deprocrastination to block distracting sites until noon, then from 12.20-4PM and 4.20-8PM. Those chunks of uninterrupted time allow me to dive into problems without distractions.
I've remove all social media except Instagram (not an issue for me) from both my phone and my tablet.
That keeps me productive.
I choose the way to live with distractions instead of avoiding it.
When I been distracted for any reason, I try to re-focus as quick as possible. Of course it would take time to get used to it but the result is far more than expected!
As chief of Production i get distracted alot. Tried a few apps. Didnt work at all, it was more like an opposite effect.
Best for me is to catch up 2-3 hours of work at home spending only like 45mins to 1h.
But i guess it's individual what actually works.
