It is not uncommon for people, especially those who work in North America, to feel overworked; Task Stones by Emily Gammon, a student at the Rochester Institute of Technology, is a system that could help manage the stress and anxiety that comes with that. As its name suggests, the system involves a set of stones that correspond to different tasks.

Ranging in size, Task Stones by Emily Gammon are meant to be matched up with the challenge of work projects. For instance, the smallest stones indicate quick and easy tasks while the largest stones represent the tasks of greatest importance. Yet their serene aesthetic and warm glow provides a soothing appearance for the user while communicating to others just how much work is on a person's desk.
