What is pomodoro technique? Giving 25 minutes of focus and 5 minutes of break. Pomodoro technique was found in 1980s by Francesco Cirillo. In the late 1980s, the technique uses a 25-minute timer to break down all work into segments, separated by short breaks. Each interval is known as a “Pomodoro”, the Italian word for ‘tomato’, courtesy of a tomato-shaped kitchen timer that Cirillo used when he was a university student. It’s been used worldwide as a time-management tool by students and working people alike.

It was found really functional and effectual in many ways. Not taking a five-minute break to distract yourself from the work is not healthy as you can get very tired which can ultimately be risky to your brain. Many take this time management techniques as it is not productive because it has intervals that can lead to procrastination and can divert your attention on something rather than work. Studies has found that majority are very satisfied with it and uses this technique in their daily lives and not just work.
