Tools for the Artist: Avoiding Social Media

If there is one thing the creative community has in common its the struggle of motivation. Sitting down for an hour or two and really concentrating on a drawing, a story you’ve been neglecting or music you’ve wanted to compose for awhile.

One of the main problems, especially with those working on their computer, is the constant need to look at that one facebook post, maybe scrolling just for a moment on Tumblr or definitely just one more video of the cat squeezing itself into a cracker box.

Here is a simple solution that forces you to concentrate on your work: Two websites/downloads that disable your social media accounts for whatever time you require so you can get your work done.

Now the first one is called StayFocused, link here:

Stay focused has a similar process as AdBlocker and the most standard option is free (If you want to be real hardcore then you can purchase options that can even remove icons from your computer)

Here is the second, Freedom link here:

Be warned that Freedom costs around three dollars a month, but I wanted to put this as an option as well. Feel free to check them out!
