The Pomodoro Technique was created by Italian Francesco Cirillo in the 80s as a productivity-increasing strategy during his university studies. The name Pomodoro comes from the Italian word for tomato, as Cirillo used a tomato-shaped kitchen timer to measure his work intervals.
The technique involves dividing work time into 25-minute blocks called "Pomodoros," followed by short 5-minute breaks. After completing four Pomodoros, take a break of 15 to 30 minutes.
The main goal of the Pomodoro Technique is to help you stay focused and work more efficiently, avoiding procrastination and burnout. The idea is that taking short and frequent breaks during work, followed by regular breaks, will help improve focus and avoid mental fatigue.
