Pause is a simple extension that challenges you to momentarily pause and reflect before visiting a distracting website.
In doing so, Pause breaks the cycle of distraction and helps you be more focused, productive, and intentional with your technology use.
When you load a distracting website, Pause creates a gentle interruption by displaying a calming green screen. After pausing for five seconds, you can then choose to continue to the site. The interruption created by Pause gently nudges you to make informed, intentional decisions about how you are spending your time.
Pause comes pre-seeded with a list of 50 top distracting websites, and you can add or remove sites from your Pause list. You can also configure the amount of time you'd like to be Paused. We'll make additional small changes in response to your feedback.
Pause is a product of Freedom Labs, where we develop new ways to meaningfully interact with technology. Learn more about Freedom here: https://freedom.to
