The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method. The technique uses a timer to break down work into intervals, traditionally 25 minutes in length, separated by short breaks.
Benefits of Pomodoro technique:
The idea behind this technique is to make one feel the urgency of time rather than feeling that there is endless time. We procrastinate because we think there is a lot of time to finish a particular task assigned and we fail to understand the importance of time. Pomodoro technique makes you productive and helps you to stay away from unnecessary distractions.
It also contains time intervals that can help you to focus on your alone, fresh time. This interval time can give you your time where you can relax or do some unfinished work apart from your studies. After relaxing you can again start doing your study with fresh mind.
It keeps accountability because after each Pomodoro you can take a minute to write down your accomplishments. This will make you aware of your productive hours and will motivate you to do better in next Pomodoro.
With the help of Pomodoro technique it becomes easy to plan effectively. it will help you to categorize the areas in which you are doing good and which areas need more attention.
It not only helps you to stay focused, well planned, and productive but also take care of your health. After each Pomodoro there is a 5-10 minutes break, in that break you can take a walk a refresh your mind by meditating or talk to your friends and family. This break time is your leisure time that you can consider as and reward for yourself for accomplishing the task you assigned to yourself.
it keeps you motivated because it becomes an exciting race to finish the work before the times run out. This excitement makes you work faster with complete motivation. It becomes a challenge to beat the timer and a person can understand his or her real potential and capability of their mind when he or she is challenged.
