Because of the endless amounts of social networks nowadays students struggle to remain focused on their tasks. There are many distractions and few are able to resist the temptation to check out their profiles. Have you ever tried to use technology to combat procrastination or lack of will? Although it sounds contradictory, here we leave you a few applications that may be useful in studying.
Self Control is an application for Mac that blocks access to any website that distracts attention. Choose the ones you consume more time and block them for a period of time. Self Control will not prevent access to sites that you need for your study. This application is free.
