The Pomodoro Technique



The Pomodoro Technique involves setting a timer for 25-minute chunks of time and focusing on one specific task.  After that task is complete, you take a 5-minute break.  Every 4 Pomodoros, the breaks increase to between 15 and 30 minutes.

This technique accomplishes 2 things:

  • Intense focus on a specific task without distraction
  • Movement after prolonged sitting reducing stiffness and increasing circulation

The heart of this technique is that the 25-minute unit of time cannot be broken–not to check an email, answer a phone or watch Tik Tok.
