6 Apps (Yes, Apps) That Will Help You Take An Internet Break

Work hard play hard, in between your 5-minute lunch break that is!  Nowadays we’re always connected, even when we’re off the clock. Not unplugging is actually a bad habit to start developing. Netted found 5 apps that will help you chill out and they don’t involve checking emails!

OffTime

OffTime allows you to go completely off the grid for however long you want! This Android app blocks any notifications from popping up as well as stops the use of any apps that may be a distraction to you, of course with your permission. After you return online, it will give you an update about what you missed and who tried to get in touch with you while you were gone. However, you can add people to your VIP list and they can bypass the blocker.

QualityTime/Moment

For you Android users, QualityTime is for you, and Moment is for MAC users. The two apps essentially do the same thing. Both apps show you how long you use an app, which apps you use most often and how often you use your phone in general. This way you can now set limits on how often you use each app.

ColdTurkey/Self Control

Cold Turkey is for PC users and Self Control is for MAC users, but both block websites for a certain amount of time, so that you can’t use it! This would come in handy during finals week or when you have a big project at work due. You can control the time yourself which works best when you are using it on someone else, like your kids!

OmmWriter

OmmWriter is not only a notification blocker but it helps you get the job done. It provides lots of relaxing zen effects.
