This is how it looks like:
And this is how it works:
- Choose a task and set your timer for 25 minutes.
- Give everything :), work hard during these 25 minutes.
- After these 25 minutes, when the timer rings, make a 5 minutes break, stand up, walk, free your mind for 5 minutes, no exception!
- Go back to the task if it’s not finished (choose a different one if you’re done) and set your timer for 25 minutes.
- Repeat this until you’ve done 4 periods of 25 minutes.
