Focus Redirection Page
Pre-med, comp sci, engineering... Two universities, one high-school... Despite the disparity in our environments and goals, all of us struggle with the same problem: time management. After extensive research, we came across a paper highlighting the benefits of taking relaxation breaks on health, performance and well being. We decided to create a simple, yet beautiful, Chrome extension that creates a study schedule for us to most efficiently utilize our time while reminding us to be mindful of our health.
What it does
Our Chrome extension is centered around the Swedish lifestyle of “lagom” (pronounced law-gum): a word that means “not too little, not too much”. We hope our users will be able to find a balance between work, play, and relaxation by utilizing our three main modes:
-Focus: This mode allows the user to (blacklist) block certain websites on the Chrome browser for a user-chosen period of time.
-Break: After each Focus period, the user will enter a Break period where any websites can be accessed for a user-chosen period.
-Unplug: This feature will prohibit the user from accessing any websites on Chrome for a certain period of time. It is suggested that the user utilize this time to get up, move around, and relax.

What's next for Lagom
Lagom is already available on the Chrome Store! We hope to be able to further streamline the user experience and possibly create versions of our application for mobile, desktop, and other browsers. Keeping in line with the meaning of “lagom”, we hope to keep this a simple, yet effective, application.
