StayFocusd increases your productivity by limiting the amount of time that you can spend on time-wasting websites. Download it onto your web browser and set time limits for your go-to procrastination websites. Once your allotted time has been used up, the sites you have blocked will be inaccessible for the rest of the day.

5. Forest: Stay Focused
The Forest app is a game but unlike, Sims, Plant versus Zombie or PubG, you play the game by staying away from your phone and being focused on what really matters and needs to be done. It works by firstly planting a virtual tree on the app and setting a timer for the amount of time you want to stay focused for (the timer can be set for anything around 10 minutes to 2 hours). With the timer set, go ahead and get started with your work for the tree to start growing, BUT make sure you have the app open so it knows you haven’t gone out of the app and become distracted, as closing/leaving the app will result in your tree dying.
Also, play the game and plant REAL trees by spending the virtual coins you earn in the app, as Forest works with the real-tree-planting organisation to plant real trees on earth
Todait is a smart study planner to help you be more efficient in your revision.
