Pomodoro Time

Pomodoro Timers are a great productivity hack. You set the timer to work for 25 minutes and then a 5 minute break. Make sure you give your eyes a rest from looking at your screen.

The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method that can be used for any task. For many people, time is an enemy. The anxiety triggered by “the ticking clock”, especially when it involves a deadline, leads to ineffective work and study habits which in turn lead to procrastination.

The aim of the Pomodoro Technique is to use time as a valuable ally in accomplishing what we want to do in the way we want to do it, and to enable us to improve continually the way we work or study.
