At the moment, most students are doing most things from their houses. This can be a good thing, but it has been mostly a bad thing for me and most of my friends. We need to be in class or in a library to concentrate and always being at the house is making us very unfocused. All the gyms are closed, so most of us have don't have very good healthy habits at the moment.
What it does
That's why I created this timer called HomeworkOut which will guide us through this cycle of 3 minute bodyweight workouts, 22 minute session of intense focus and 5 minute break. This is based on the pomodoro technique but it also incorporates bodyweight exercices, since any types of exercise is A LOT better than none (src: https://www.health.harvard.edu/blog/how-much-exercise-do-you-really-need-less-than-you-think-201512088770) Also, physical activity help humans get into this state of mind called FLOW, in which we are extremely focused, creative and productive.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
I am proud to have finished it on time. The site is full stack (has a backend and a database) It records data and works well. I can finally use it and it is up and running on a public server on my domain mathusan.net.
What we learned
What's next for HomeworkOut
I want to be able to make it look better. I just want to use it now for the rest of my semester at McGill to study for my classes and get in shape.
