If you are also facing such problems “Pomodoro technique” is going to help you

Today the way students study have drastically changed (especially during this corona crisis). Now they watch lectures online sometimes continuously for many hours and many of them face problems like lack of concentration, they are not able to watch screen continuously for long periods , some are unable to adapt to online lectures as they are accustomed to classroom classes.

If you are also facing such problems “Pomodoro technique” is going to help you.

What is Pomodoro technique?

The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. The technique uses a timer to break down work into intervals, traditionally 25 minutes in length, separated by short breaks. Each interval of time spent working is known as a pomodoro.

What steps to follow?

There are six steps in this technique:

  1. Decide on the task to be done.

  2. Set the pomodoro timer (traditionally to 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.

Any other added advantage?

As pomodoros are completed, they add to a sense of accomplishment and providing raw data for subsequent self-observation and improvement.

Can I change the timing or they have to be same as advised above ?

Some variations can be done but preserve the core Pomodoro Technique principle of working in specific time blocks - but you can adjust the periods to better suit individual needs.

  • Rather than a 25 minute focus period, work in 90 minute blocks. This reflects a natural concentration cycle.
  • There may be natural time markers in your life - for example the period between meetings, or the time until your kids or partner come home, or the time until the dishwasher finishes. Use these to define focus periods.
  • Monitor your natural productivity periods, and from this data work out the best productivity system for yourself.

Hope this helps.
