After hearing a great deal of talk about procrastination today at the Well Woman training, I thought I’d bring the blog-viewing audience a helpful application that I use to avert my own procrastination: FocusBooster!
FocusBooster is a timer tool that you can set to your own work/break schedule. The default is 25 minutes work, then a 5 minute break (as per the Pomodoro method, explained here and on the FocusBooster website), but this timer can be adjusted to any intervals you want. It also ticks like a timer and gives break alerts – should you choose to turn these functions on. Overall, it’s a simple and effective way to put your focus on the work while also leaving room for a healthy reward.
