Pomodoro Study Hack

What’s up code newbies. I wanted to share this awesome focus hack to use during your studies. The Pomodoro Technique is a study hack developed in the late 80’s by Francesco Cirillo during his time in university. For those of us who lack focus in this world filled with social media distractions I must admit this technique has been a game changer for me. To begin using this technique you should start with the recommended 25 minutes of focused study followed by a 5 minute break. As you begin to get better at focusing on the task at hand,(In my case Front End Development) you may find that the regular 25/5 split is too small. If you get to this point by all means increase the timer. Currently, Im following a 45/5 split with a 30 minute break after 4 pomodoros. Code newbies I highly recommend you give the technique a try by visiting Marinara timer. Marimara timer is a highly customizable online timer you can use during your studies or you can always buy a old fashion Tomato timer. Leave me a comment below if you found this study hack to be effective.

  1. This is very good. Most people don’t realize that concentration, like any other skill, must be increased through training and discipline. It isn’t a ‘built-in’ feature of consciousness.

    You recommend using longer intervals if these are too brief, but going the other way is an option as well. In our attention-deficit world, I think many people may need to start from the ground up and build towards the goals you suggest.

    Thanks.
