Pomodoro technique is a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. The technique is named after the Italian word for "tomato" (pomodoro), as a timer is typically used to keep track of the work intervals. The Pomodoro Technique is based on the idea that it is easier to sustain focus for short periods of time, and that taking regular breaks can help to improve overall productivity. The technique involves working for 25 minutes, followed by a 5-minute break. This cycle is repeated 4 times, after which a longer break of 15-20 minutes is taken. There are a number of different ways to use the Pomodoro Technique, and it can be customized to fit each person's needs. There are also a number of different tools and apps that can be used to help with time.
