If you’re having trouble focusing on work or any other task that needs to be done, perhaps this revolutionary technique can help you.
The Pomodoro (Italian word for tomato) technique got its name from a kitchen timer that’s often shaped like a tomato. It provides a simple and effective way to get more done in less time by giving yourself time blocks to focus on work with small breaks in between.
The beauty of pomodoro is that you can apply it everywhere and for anything. All you need is a timer (on your phone, for example), that you set for 25 minutes during which you will focus on work and then for 5 minutes for a break.
After completing four such cycles, you earn a 15-minute break that you can use to stretch your legs before returning to your desk.
Setting a timer on your phone is not the only way to use pomodoro. You can also use a browser-add on that will remind you when your time is up or play one of the numerous Youtube videos of people studying/working in 25-5 minute intervals.
You will be surprised how much you can achieve in only 25 minutes if you focus! Turn work into a little game and start using pomodoro today to handle the work you’ve been putting off!
