Unf**k Your Habitat. The recommendation from Sarah Frick on Twitter (and the name of the app) interested me enough to download it for myself for the productivity assignment. I wasn’t disappointed!

The app itself was created for motivating people to keep their homes clean, but also has a built in 20/10 timer. It was a double-whammy because I found both features useful!
For me, it’s feast or famine both in academia and in day-to-day life. On occasion, I feel super motivated and go on a marathon cleaning or homework spree with little or no break. Then, I feel unmotivated to do anything for a long time…too long, and I let things pile up again. Honestly, it’s not a very sustainable practice.
With the help of this app, I can dedicate a little bit of time each day to achieving something big overall. 20 minutes goes by really quickly, then by taking a 10 minute break, I feel refreshed and recharged to work for another 20 minutes. I used this app when I made my History of Copyright infographic and it worked wonderfully!
I should really start using it more for keeping my house clean…
