Follow the 52/17 rule.

Studies have shown that working for 52 minutes, followed by a 17 minute break, is the perfect formula for ultimate productivity. But make sure to leave your computer/work area for the whole break continuing to sit at your desk and halfway-work simply makes you less productive when you actually return from your break Take a quick walk grab something to drink, or go outside. Anything to mentally separate yourself from your workspace before returning for another hour of super-productive work

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
