It doesn't take a revolutionary thinker to point out that many people are using digital content too frequently for their own good, and ZenScreen is a platform that hopes to wean those people off of their unhealthy habits without having to cut out everything. ZenScreen, which includes an app and a browser extension, helps people to use their screens more responsibly based on what it refers to as a "balanced digital diet".

There are plenty of apps that help people to focus by cutting out distractions entirely. However, there's nothing wrong with watching a few YouTube videos or an episode of a show on Netflix. Issues arise when people spend hours upon hours on these sites. ZenScreen created a pyramid of apps to show how long per day it's appropriate and responsible to spend on given platforms, and it blocks apps based on that.
