Abstract—As an issue that increases stress and decreases work quality worldwide, procrastination requires easily accessible solutions. In order to create one, I designed and implemented a mobile application that enforces healthy work habits. The application contains a text editor that can be locked while the user is working, preventing the user from leaving the app until he or she inputs a set number of words. It also connects to a physical locker, which locks while the app is locked. The app also contains a task manager, allowing the user to manage his or her tasks effectively. Overall, the application prevents the user from becoming distracted from outside sources and keeps him or her focused on the required work.

Index Terms—Android, mobile development, procrastination, Raspberry Pi.
