I am looking for a dependable software that I described above.
I know of this because my uni's PC has this kind of timer where it logs off after 30 minutes of quick use.
I need it for Windows, but suggestions for Mac are welcome since I use dual boot. Also, if there is some txt script or other suggestion or Windows/Mac tricks it is also very much welcome.
Does anyone know of it?
- It has notification when there is 10, 5, 3 minutes left.
- It has to be free.
- An extra point would be given to those who find a software where it immediately starts to count down when I logged in back (but if not possible I wouldnt mind).
As a start, the one my uni use is called MyPC something and I tried TimeComX but would like to know more alternatives
The reason I am asking this: I tend to procrastinate for many hours (I have ADHD, anxiety, depression) and having short x minutes for a few sessions has shown to help me get back on track since it creates some urgency to finish and save all the tasks before the computer logs off. It also helps, I realized, to browse more important pages and keep track of time since I tend to browse until the wee hours and open so many new tabs.
Pomodoro timer does not help much since I can stop/start anytime.
I tried and experimented with so many Android apps but the ringing/vibration doesn't really work since I tend to ignore it after a while and create much disturbance around me and also it doesn't deal with PC usage and only a soft reminder.
I do favour the idea of having a smartwatch with gentle tap every x minutes though! I am aware of this product somewhere on the internet but still skeptical.
