A Helpful App For Reading

I haven't done any posts lately, because I've been really busy. Since I've had so much to do, I haven't finished any books. So today, I thought I'd do a post a little different from what I usually do. It'll be short, but more posts are soon to come. :)

We've all been there; wanting to read, but texting a friend instead. The same thing goes for homework. Procrastination is something we all do. However, I've found a solution to this problem!
A few days ago, an app popped up under my 'recommended apps' and it looked interesting, so I decided to try it out. It's called "Forest: Stay Focused". (This is of course not a sponsored post.)

In this app, all you do is plant a 'tree' whenever you want to focus on something and stay away from your phone. You can pick a duration of time. Let's say I want to do homework for 15 minutes. I'd plant a '15 minute tree' and after the fifteen minutes, I'd be able to plant that tree in my forest and receive coins. With those coins I can then purchase new types of trees to plant. However, if you use your phone during those 15 minutes, the tree will die, and you won't get coins. The tree in your garden will also die.

This is a really simple, useful app for staying focused. I recommend it for doing homework, reading, and just any activities where you want to stay off your phone.

More posts to come soon! I hope you all have a lovely rest of the week
