Pomodoro Timer


What is The Pomodoro Technique

The Pomodoro Technique was created in the late 1980s by Francesco Cirillo. The name comes from the Italian word for ‘tomato’ after the tomato-shaped kitchen timer Cirillo initially used to time his work intervals.

The technique alternates between 25-minute periods of focused work on a single task, called a “Pomodoro”, and 5-minute breaks in between completed Pomodoros.

It helps to break big tasks into smaller ones that can be done easily.

The basic process for implementing the original Pomodoro Technique is as follows:

  1. Choose a task or activity to work on. Set a timer to 25 minutes.
  2. Work on that single task without distraction until the 25 minutes is up.
  3. When the timer rings, take a 5-minute break. This time should involve stretching, getting a drink, etc.
  4. Every 4 Pomodoros (about every 2 hours), take a longer 15-30 minute break.
  5. Repeat steps 1-4 until your task or workday is complete.

Studies show that it improves focus and concentration, reduces fatigue, and increases productivity.

Many people use the technique alongside goal setting and to-do lists for productivity.

How Does Pomodoro Timer Work

  • The Pomodoro clock breaks down work sessions into 25 minutes, with 5-minute breaks in between.
  • To start, you set the timer for a 25-minute work block. Then click start on the Pomodoro timer.
  • The timer counts down the minutes/seconds remaining in that work segment.
  • An alarm will sound when the timer reaches 0:00, alerting you to take a break.
  • The timer then automatically starts a 5-minute break countdown.
  • During the 5-minute break, relax your mind and body before the next work block begins.
  • After 4 Pomodoro intervals are completed, take a longer 15-30 minute break to recharge further before starting your next set of Pomodoros.
  • The cycles alternate between dedicated 25-minute work sprints and 5-minute breaks.
