For: Focus improvement gamification

forest remote work apps

There’s one thing that remote work newbies and old-timers have in common, and no surprises here—it’s trouble focusing. It doesn’t need an extra explanation—the home environment is full of distractions, and avoiding them requires a good amount of self-discipline. Especially when you usually use the same room to work, eat, and relax.

If the ordinary solutions for focus improvement aren’t working anymore, try gamifying the experience and choose Forest. Both remote and hybrid teams will definitely have fun using this app, but I’m sure it’ll bring remote workers an extra benefit.

Forest allows you to plant a virtual tree every time you want to stay productive, e.g., when you start a new task. And here the fun starts—your perfect focus waters the tree. Once you get distracted and abandon your work, leaving the app halfway, the tree will die. You don’t want it to wither too early, do you? You’d better maintain the highest focus level and enjoy the beautiful online forest growing because you’re doing a good job.

What’s more, Forest team members partner with a real tree-planting organization! Each time Forest app users spend their virtual coins, a company donates and creates planting orders. Stay productive and perfectly focused to help protect the planet!
