The Pomodoro Technique πŸ…

If you are off to do some deep work, it’s easy to dive into it and lose yourself in time and space πŸ™‚

“The Pomodoro Technique” is a time management method that helps you increase productivity and avoid burnout. The idea is simple:

  • Pick a new task at hand that you need to complete
  • Set a 25-minute alarm for non-interrupted time to work
  • After the work sprint, take a 5-minute break
  • Every 4 pomodoros, take a 20 to 30-minute break before the coming sprint.

πŸ’‘Pro tip: you can change the times to be more suitable for your needs!

The name “Pomodoro” comes from the Italian word for “tomato”, as the creator of the technique, Francesco Cirillo used a kitchen timer shaped like a tomato to keep track of his work intervals.

The Pomodoro Technique helps you stay focused and avoid distractions while you work, as well as giving you enough breaks to recharge your batteries and avoid burnout. So, if you’re looking for a fun and effective way to boost your productivity, try the Pomodoro Technique! Just don’t forget to set your tomato timer!
