What is Pomodoro Technique?

The Pomodoro Technique is a time management system that encourages people to work with the time they have—rather than against it. Using this method, you break your workday into 25-minute chunks separated by five-minute breaks. These intervals are referred to as pomodoros. After about four pomodoros, you take a longer break of about 15 to 20 minutes.

MORE IDEAS FROM Pomodoro technique is effective

Each pomodoro is dedicated to one task and each break is a chance to reset and bring your attention back to what you should be working on. This technique helps in productivity. It gets much easier to complete the task. You can increase the minutes as per your need.

The idea behind the technique is that the timer instills a sense of urgency. Rather than feeling like you have endless time in the workday to get things done and then ultimately squandering those precious work hours on distractions, you know you only have 25 minutes to make as much progress on a task as possible. And after 25 minutes you get 5 min short break.

Make planning a habit

Some mornings we feel motivated to create a to-do list, but that is often the exception. We need to get things done, even when we feel disengaged.

Start by setting the alarm for your daily planning session at the same time every day. Tack your new daily planning session onto an existing habit like drinking your morning coffee.

What's the animedoro technique?

The animedoro technique, invented by Josh Chen, is a perfect work time management for people who need more time to focus and for who love watching animes or shows.

It is based on the pomodoro technique: 25 minutes of work and 5 minutes of break, after 4 cycles there is a longer break. 

The animedoro changes this technique into 40 to 60 minutes of work and 20 minutes of watching an anime or a show (or other activities) of your choice.
