We are always on the run with time, trying to get the most out of 24 hours. Some days are exceptional where we achieve more than we expect, but there are also times when time merely passes, and we can’t start to finish. After all, we are not robots to provide 100% productivity always. *Cue music – we’re only human.*
However, we have deadlines to meet and targets to achieve. No matter how distracted you are – you need to focus yourself back. Refocus yourself from the internet and its razzmatazz! Here are some of the fun apps that will help you in staying on track with your schedule.

It is where the app, Self Control comes into the picture.
