Many of you have expressed that you easily get distracted or drained while doing work on the computer and online. Here is a list of 7 tools I use to keep my sanity while on the computer:
1. Ad Blocker
Ad blocker reduces distractions while you are on the internet in a big way. There are no more ads when you visit FB or other websites. This version is for Firefox; search on Google if you use another browser.
2. Unroll Me
This is a truly amazing tool for cleaning up your email inbox. After you sign up, you can see a list of all your subscription emails. Unsubscribe instantly from whatever you don’t want and collect the ones you want to keep in one overview.
With LeechBlock, you can block time-wasting sites during certain times of the day or after a certain amount of use. This version is for Firefox; search on Google if you use another browser.
The blue light from the computer screen can interfere with the production of melatonin in the brain, which we need to have a good sleep. f.lux filters the light on your computer screen when the sun sets.
5. One Password
This is the way I manage my passwords. I only have to remember one master password, which I have made to be a sentence that gives me an important reminder every time I type it. (It costs $25.)
OmmWriter creates a private writing room on your computer where you can remove all distractions to focus on your writing in peace.
This is the project management system we use at Awakening Women. We love it. It costs $99/month. Trello and Asana are also good project management systems that have free versions.
I have no affiliation with any of these services. I am simply sharing the tools that have worked for me.
With Love, Always,
