The Pomodoro technique is a popular time management technique. The major logic behind the technique is to work in blocks of time, roughly 25 mins at a stretch. This is also called Pomodoro session, which is followed by a break of 5 minutes.
This technique demands proper attention to a task which lasts for 25 mins and a break is to take you away from it and take rest. It will give you enough time to take breaks and improve productivity too.
Let’s see how it actually works-
1) Decide On A Task
Take some time in the morning to plan out your day, specify what you will work on and how many sessions (according to 25 minutes) you will require.
Did you know it takes us 25 minutes to get our focus back after a distraction? Well that’s a pretty long time, isn’t it? Consider what distracts you the most and keep away from it, this distraction could be your phone, some colleagues, or social media.
3) Work On The Task
Now that you have made up your task list hit the play button and focus. You cannot take a break in between so go ahead and complete your 25-minute long session.
4) Quick Break
Take a 5-minute break after your 25-minute session and move away from your desk.
Clear your mind from your previous task and take a refreshing walk and get back.
Four sessions of 25 minutes are one round of pomodoros, by following this method you will have more productivity.
6) Long Break
After 4 sessions take a longer break, roughly 20 minutes is recommended. You can take frequent breaks if the task is intense.
So make sure you’re putting in the right energy for your sessions to give you the best productivity.
