Pomodoro Technique
The Pomodoro Technique teaches you to work with time, instead of struggling against it. A revolutionary time management system, it is at once deceptively simple to learn and life-changing to use.
Using this technique, you break your workday into 25-minute chunks separated by five-minute breaks. These intervals are referred to as pomodoros. After about four pomodoros, you take a longer break of about 15 to 20 minutes. The benefits of Pomodoro Technique are: - More focus and concentration - Less stress - Better management of interruptions - Keeping high motivation levels - Reinforcing your determination in order to achieve something - Better awareness of the time you need to get things done

How to do it

  1. Choose a task you'd like to get done
  2. Take a piece of paper and track your Pomodoros. Set your timer for 25 minutes
  3. Work on the task until the timer rings
  4. When the timer rings, put a checkmark on the paper and take a short break
  5. Every 4 pomodoros, take a longer break
