I am currently in the process of writing my bachelor thesis and my goal is to finish it as soon as possible. What I sometimes have problems with is distraction. If I don’t immediately enjoy a task, but have to overcome myself, then I get easily distracted. “Just check out something else for a minute…”

But because of the distraction, I accomplish less and that then leads to me panicking even more about not finishing on time.

That’s why I need countermeasures. One is to activate a mode on my phone in the “Digital Wellbeing” settings, where only certain apps (e.g. phone and SMS) are allowed, but all others are blocked. The other is LeechBlock, a browser extension that allows me to block all distracting sites.That I don’t even think about letting myself be distracted “briefly” by non-productive things.

LeechBlock NG is a simple productivity tool: a web browser extension designed to block those time-wasting sites that can suck the life out of your working day. (You know: the ones that rhyme with ‘Blue Cube’, ‘Space Hook’, ‘Sticky Media’, ‘Quitter’, and the like.) All you need to do is specify which sites to block and when to block them.
