A New App That Helps You Focus - & Save The Environment

A New App That Helps You Focus - & Save The Environment

Updated: Oct 27, 2019

Recently I have been detoxing from social media, feeling like I am overly obsessed with my phone and have spent way too much time just scrolling, looking at funny videos & memes, and just comparing my life to others. It was definitely about time that I took some time away from the digital world & took a step back at my own life, starting with how much time I spend throughout my day ACTUALLY being productive.

First things first, during my break, I started doing research on which phone applications could help me stay productive & keep my mind right along with my phone being organized. Transitioning my life to being minimal can be a juggle but upon my research, I quickly found one app that has been helping me stay focused & motivated to be consistent. Within two weeks, I feel as though I have been using my time towards more important tasks and not getting distracted by notifications coming through on my phone. This app I am about to share has really brought out me to be laser-focused!

What It's About

Flora is an application made to "help you and friends put down the phones and be present", according to their mission found on their main site. Its simple to use and easy to understand! All I was looking for was an app to help me in some way keep me off my phone, time me and reward me in some small but SIMPLE way. The app developers did just that. By keeping the layout sleek

On the website, you will find that the developers encourage you to use the app with others, which is great to hold your friends & family accountable.

How It Works - 3 Steps

1) Plant a seed with friends (or by yourself) whenever you want to put down the phones.

2) Pick the duration of time you want to stay off your mobile device. As you focus on what‘s more important, the seed will gradually grow into a healthy tree. You can even include a strong incentive like betting actual cash!

3) Once the time is up, you'll receive a notification telling you that your tree has grown, leaving you with a nice little looking garden as you rack up focus hours! You can even take breaks in between or if you just cant resist, you can give up.

Thats it! Its that simple! Here is the fun part, if anyone can‘t resist using the phone, the tree will be killed.

At any time, you can use the Flora Real service to plant a real tree on earth and help cool down this planet. To learn more, download Flora now!

Its fun, simple & great way to keep you off your time-waster and use your time wisely. The app developers encourage those that use the app to review and share their experiences with the app. I would like to thank the team for reaching out to share and promote this wonderful project.

Download it, try it out, and let me know what you think!
