Apps for distraction prevention:

  • LeechBlock NG (browser extension)
    • I use this and I just completely block off a bunch of social media sites during my work day
  • PawBlock (browser extension)
    • Shows you pictures of cats
  • Focus by Meaningful Things (Apple devices only)
    • Requires a subscription
  • SelfControl (MacOS 10.10+)
    • Free, open source

I used to use Forest but they collect a bunch of information that it doesnโ€™t need to. I no longer use or recommend it.
