Students Nando Ramadhin and Sil Oeldrich suffered from the same problem, which is why they came up with the FocusBox, launched this week on their website FocusFamily.

"We get constant messages via Whatsapp, Instagram or Snapchat. With each notification, the most of us tend to grab the phone to check out what it is," explains Sil. "Did you know that it takes 25 minutes on average to fully focus on your work again after you get a notification?" That's according to a research conducted in the University of California back in 2005.

Nando highlights that the FocusBox can be especially useful now that the most of us are working and studying from home. "At home we get distracted much more easily," he says. "We've also noticed that it takes less time for people to grab their phone when a class is being offered online instead of face to face. The FocusBox can, therefore, help in that regard."

The product can also be used to guarantee some quality time with friends and family. Thanks to its time locking device, users can determine how long the box will stay locked.
