Time Management: What’s the Pomodoro technique?

The Pomodoro technique is based on the idea that frequent breaks can improve mental agility. A pomodoro is the interval of time spend working. This technique reduces the impact of  interruptions. There are six stages to this technique: 

1.Decide on the task that has to be done.

2.Set a timer (traditionally 25 minutes)

3. Work on the task until the timer rings. If another task comes up, write it down so you can work on it after the timer rings.

4. After the timer rings, leave a placeholder on your task.  

 5. Take a short 5 minute break after the timer rings.

The Pomodoro technique helps eliminate burnout, manage distractions, and work with time rather than racing against it.
