Benefits of habit “Have no more than 2 tabs open”

✓ Boosts productivity
✓ Increases order
✓ Helps plan tasks and organize time
✓ Reduces distractions

First step:

One day per week


1. Have no more than 2 tabs open. One day per week.
2. Next week do it two days.
3. Keep increasing days, until you’re left with just 2 tabs running at all times.

Helpful tips to make it a habit:

✓ Same time is key. Set yourself a tab organizing time and keep to it. We recommend evenings before end of work hours.
✓ Trigger your mind. Have a large sticker with CLOSE TABS written on it and place it somewhere always visible. That way your brain won’t have a way of forgetting it.
✓ Let the app help. Set a reminder to ring for time to close tabs. You can also track the days you missed your tab organizing time in the calendar.
✓ Reward yourself. Once you’ve successfully reduced the number of tabs to just two, celebrate by getting yourself the most luxurious cup of coffee available to you and admire the order of your browser. Nothing like appreciating your own hard work to really make it meaningful.

Tips for beginners:

✓ Only what you need. Think of the tabs you will always need for work. Maybe it’s online CRM and a search bar to find some information. Or maybe it’s a social network and admin panel of your blog site. Pick 2 most important things and keep only them open.
✓ Think of the savings. Opening so many browser tabs really does a number on your machine. Observe how much quicker it works when it doesn’t have to support that many things open.
✓ Use bookmarks. If you need to reach certain things, use bookmarks instead of tabs. You will always have the link available and you can organize them further into related folders. Bring some order in your browsing life.
