Focus Booster : The Pomodoro Technique

pomodoro

The pomodoro technique is a time management technique which  allows you to work with time, using time to your advantage to stay fresh, remove distractions and create a better work life balance. The pomodoro technique uses a timer to break down periods of work into 25-minute intervals (referred to as ‘pomodoros’ or ‘pomodoro sessions’). These intervals are separated by breaks (the standard is 5 minutes). Pomodoro time management is based on the theory that frequent breaks can improve mental agility. I can vouch for that!

How do you implement the pomodoro technique?

Here are the five basic steps to implementing pomodoro time management;

– decide on the focus task.

– set the pomodoro timer to 25 minutes.

– work on the task until the timer rings.

– take a short break (5 minutes), keep note of the number of session you complete.

– every 4 sessions take a longer break, perhaps 15 or 20 minutes.
