Strict Workflow: Stop Side-Tracking While Doing Homework

All high schoolers are all guilty of distracting themselves with social media, YouTube, Netflix, and other online entertainment or social websites while in the middle of doing their homework. I myself am guilty of doing this. Spending hours upon hours of doing things that are not related to my homework tears through valuable time that I could use to either sleep, or even finish my homework so I can get it over with! But have no fear, there is a Google Chrome extension that lets you focus on your work, and give you a small break time that you can use to look at your other stuff.

This Chrome extension is named Strict Workflow. It allows you to set up a timer dedicated to finishing your work and a timer dedicated to time that you want to spend on a break before going back to work. It is very simple to set up, and hopefully it will help you study for school!
