Due to the situation of COVID – 19 did you have to work at home? In today’s article we will introduce you to some tools that you can use to make your day-to-day work at home easier.
Serene and Forest to turn off distractions
Serene is an application that will help you turn off phone distractions when you need to focus, online. This application sets a daily objective (for example, reviewing a report or preparing a presentation) and dividing that objective into tasks. In addition, it will also block other applications / sites that can distract, for example, YouTube and use “focus stimulators” such as, for example, clocks in countdown until the next pause.
The Forest application works as a game for when you want to take a break or focus on a single task. It works like a game in which you “plant a virtual tree” that grows during your break. The tree dies when you lose focus and consult other sites or applications.
Slack or Teams
These platforms are instant messaging platforms. That is, you can exchange direct messages between different users. But what differentiates it from other platforms like Messenger or WhatsApp? Well, the difference is that there are no messages from friends or family in the same screen space, so you will not be distracted from reading and replying to messages from family and friends, you will only receive messages about your work.
With this program you will be able to share with several people suggestions for a specific theme or project, through messages in the form of balloons.
