What is the Pomodoro Technique?
The Pomodoro Technique helps you bring your full attention to the task at hand so you can finish the task quickly & effectively.
Using the Pomodoro technique, you split your day into 25-minute focus sessions followed by 5-minute break sessions.
According to Wikipedia, each focus session is known as a Pomodoro, from the Italian word for tomato.
Using the Pomodoro method, you’ll be able to stay focused & mentally fresh throughout the day.
Francesco Cirillo, the inventor of the Pomodoro Technique, recommends you to track interruptions during a focus session so you can avoid them in your next session.

Top Tips for Using the Pomodoro Technique
Actually take breaks
Taking breaks might seem like a waste of your time. However, giving yourself a rest helps you accomplish more.
A break really helps to uplift your mood & make you feel better. At the end of each day, you’d feel less stressed & cramped up.
Experiment with the length of your sessions
If you’re having trouble focusing, or there’s a lot of mental resistance, a shorter session will help.
Otherwise try extending the length of the session if it is too short. A study found that a 52-minute focus with a 17-minute break is the perfect balance.
