Block distractions
and get work done.

Your lack of focus isn’t a “you” problem. It's a global big tech problem. Every day your poor brain struggles to stay focused while thousands of smart engineers, marketers and billion-dollar algorithms conspire to distract you and shorten your attention span.

Focus Bear blocks those naughty attention grabbers by design with Focus Modes so you can stay focused on your most important tasks.

Setup Focus Modes in 5 minutes with Focus Bear:

  1.  Create a new Focus Mode and name it
  2.  Set apps that you want included in your Focus Mode
  3.  Set websites that you want included in your Focus Mode

For the most productive Focus Modes we recommend:

  • Pre-emptively deciding what sites are off-limits 
  • Creating separate focus modes for your biggest job responsibilities (coding, project management, etc)
  • Create a general focus mode and set it to the Pomodoro technique for days when you’re doing a lot of context switching

🗓️ Meeting Focus Mode is pre-installed and doesn’t show breaks if your camera or microphone is on.

Morning routines
to boost productivity

Following a habit routine starts your day calm first thing in the morning. And you can do it without having to use any brainpower. (Mornings are enough of a struggle!)

Set up your morning routine in 2 minutes with Focus Bear

  1.  Choose your habit routine activities
  2.  State how long you want to spend on each activity
  3.  Say what time you’d like to start your routine every day

Boom! Your routine is set and you can forget having to remember a thing. 

We recommend a habit routine that includes:

  • A physical activity like pushups 
  • A creative activity like journaling
  • A mindful activity like deep breathing
  • A chore like doing a load of laundry

🌙 You can also setup a night routine so at the end of your day you can focus on the important things like your family and friends.

Take productivity-
boosting breaks.

Starting off your day cool and collected is a great first step. But that mood can melt away without short breaks to breakup the keyboard clacking. 

Setup breaks that kill fatigue in 2 minutes with Focus Bear

  1.  Decide what specific tasks you’d like to accomplish during each break 
  2.  Setup how often you get breaks within your set working hours
  3.  Decide how long you’d like each break activity to be

For the most efficient breaks we recommend:

  • Adding a YouTube video for micro-exercise or meditation breaks
  • Setting clear instructions for your break (do 15 pushups, wash dishes for 10 minutes)

💡 And you can randomize which breaks pop up so you don’t get bored!

Know you’re
reaching your goals.

Focus Bear helps you build habit routines, take better breaks, and ban distractions so you can get (close to) perfect code and everything not code done too.

Founder’s Note

Jeremy Nagel, Chief Bear Obeyer (CBO) at Focus Bear.

G'day mate!

Despite my best intentions, every day my amazing morning routine would devolve into sleepily checking emails - and then wondering what happened to my time.

I wanted a tool that would actually force me to get my yoga done instead of scrolling. And I tried everything; parental control apps, hiding my laptop in a cupboard, asking my wife to slap me if she found me on email in the morning.

None of them worked consistently and my cheeks were getting sore.

In desperation, I started working with a MacOS dev on a new app that would blend the best features from other apps out there. One that would guide me towards better habits while reducing procrastination.

And now I have the solution - Focus Bear.

Since using the app, I’ve consistently done my morning routine and reached Super Saiyan status as a Yogi (or at least that’s my excuse for dying my hair blond).

Try out Focus Bear for free and have your beary best day!
