Here, you'll find a tote to help you carry things home, a bra to support you during the walk, and a bag of cold brew for the inevitable return of hectic mornings.

forest app

Whenever you need to stay focused and off your phone, just plant a tree in the Forest app. Set an amount of time you need to stay productive, and while your tree is growing, you won't be able to access apps you've decided to lock. Once your tree is grown, your task should be finished, and you'll be able to use your phone again. Plus, the little tree-growing animation is very soothing.
