I have optimized by work environment using Digital Minimalism and I try to engage in deep work sessions every day. The following is a list of the top 3 Chrome Extensions that help me stay focused, boost my productivity, as well as help me sustain my deep work sessions without distractions.
1. ‘Web Activity Time Tracker’ Chrome Extension
This extension helps you find culprit websites that might be interfering with your deep work sessions or breaking your productivity streak. You can make a list of these website URLs and block them using the next extension.
2. ‘Focus’ Chrome Extension
Focus is a simple Chrome Extension that blocks the specified set of URLs with a simple blocked message rather than redirecting the websites to any additional distraction or even motivational messages.
As simple as it sounds, this extension limits your chrome work environment to 3 tabs only. This could be challenging initially but once you get used to it, you’ll find this limitation is actually a great way to boost your productivity and focus.
3 tabs only!
Those are my top 3 Chrome Extensions for productivity. These extensions are also great to engage in deep work sessions as you can minimize distractions using the right settings of these extensions.
