I tend to set tasks with good in­ten­tions — write an es­say, fin­ish a book, feed the kids. And yet, I of­ten find my­self get­ting dis­tracted by friends send­ing me a con­stant stream of cat GIFs. Now, you can re­sist the temp­ta­tion us­ing Forest — an app de­signed to help you stay fo­cused on the job at hand. Choose the length of time you wish to ab­stain from your de­vice. You’ll then see a tree be­gin grow­ing on your de­vice. Exit the app and the tree will wither be­fore even­tu­ally dy­ing a hor­ri­ble, nat­u­ral death (you cruel, cruel hu­man be­ing). The app pro­vides use­ful sta­tis­tics show­ing just how self-dis­ci­plined you truly are.
