During high-stress times in high school and post-secondary, students are tasked with completing many assignments. Many students lack healthy focusing habits which can lead to stress and inefficient completion of tasks. UMO tackles the design challenges of: How might we encourage healthier focusing habits and produce higher productivity in students and young working people to avoid feeling overwhelmed and stressed?

UMO uses the Pomodoro Technique, by breaking down the workday into 25-minute chunks, separated by five-minute smart breaks. After about four pomodoros, users take a longer break of about 15 to 20 minutes. Using UMO, users can commit to timed work sessions, feel more accountable to their time, reduce the interruption of screen distractions, and create better working atmospheres. After working, users can track where their time is going by allocating sessions to tasks/tags.
