Pomodoro Technique

Improve your productivity with healthy time management

The Pomodoro technique is a method that boosts productivity by breaking down work periods into 25-minute slices, separated by short breaks.There are six steps in the original technique:

  1. Decide on the task to be done.
  2. Set the pomodoro timer (25 minutes).
  3. Work on the task.
  4. End work when the timer rings and put a checkmark on a piece of paper.
  5. If you have fewer than four checkmarks, take a short break (3-5 minutes), then go to step 2.
  6. After four pomodoros, take a longer break (15-30 minutes), reset your checkmark count to zero, then go to step 1.
