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.
I have no affiliation with any of these services. I am simply sharing the tools that have worked for me.
With Love, Always,
