Do you know about the Tomato Timer?
Otherwise know as the Pomodoro Technique.
The Pomodoro Technique was invented in the early 1990s by the developer and author Francesco Cirillo. The method is named “Pomodoro” after the tomato-shaped timer Cirillo used to track his work as a university student.
The basics of the Pomodoro technique are simple. When you are faced with a large task or a series of tasks, break the work down into short intervals and space them out by short breaks.
More specifically, set up a timer to 25 minutes and do your focused, uninterrupted work in this interval (called “Pomodoro”). Then take a 5-minute break – you should get up, stretch, and all that – before you start another 25-minute cycle. Every four Pomodoros take a longer break.
The Pomodoro technique will train your brain to focus for short periods of time and help you stay productive and focused. You’ll notice that, over time, it will improve your attention span and concentration in addition to making you more productive.
