    Absolutely! I’ve been struggling with distractions lately, and this approach seems like a practical way to tackle them. How long have you been using the Pomodoro Technique, and have you noticed a significant improvement in your productivity?

    The technique is good, but I believe that it doesn’t work perfectly for everyone. I personally find it extremely useful when I’m deep down in a procrastination swamp, but as soon as I become focused and productive, the pomodoro doesn’t make any sense.

    I have never considered half of these ideas, very informative.

      Hello, we recommend using the Pomodoro Technique however frequently it works best for you and your schedule. We always recommend trying the Pomodoro Technique at least once and testing whether it works for you and the way you learn.

    I got a doubt..
    Is this method suitable for all grades?

    1. Minori

      The Pomodoro technique can be used by all ages and grades! However, whether this technique will be helpful is entirely up to the individual person. Best of luck on your studies!

    I love this technique. i use to a have similar practice in college. i come up having a schedule for the whole day and for the whole week. when i adapted to the routine, everything seems so easy for me after that.

      It’s totally up to you if you want to adapt the technique to better suit your preferences!

    Quite amazing!. But I think the technique needs to be a little upgraded. If you are in a flow state and hear the timer go off, rather than continuing the task we go about taking the break. This causes to lose focus and decreases efficiency. The updated version needs to be a fusion of Pomodoro and flow state.

      We’re glad this resource helped you reflect on what process would help you be the most efficient and productive!

  19. Fadeke

    I love this technique and I will definitely try it. Also, I wanted to ask about the four pomodoros but I can see it has been answered.

    My only question is, what Pomodoro time duration is considered as most suitable?

    Thanks in advance 🙂

    1. Minori

      The full cycle discussed here will take you 2.5 hours. It will depend on the person whether they can keep going for another 2.5 hours after the first full cycle, or if they want to add more “pomodoro + 5 minute break” time segments afterwards. Hope that helps!

    A great technique i faced many changes but what i dont understand is can we take a 5 min break or a 10 min break is fine

    1. Minori

      The standard break schedule calls for 5 minute breaks (until the longer, 30-minute break comes around), but personalizing the process can be very beneficial. If you prefer 10 minute breaks, go for it!

    Why we have to write down our Distracting thoughts on a piece of Paper ?

    1. kartik chhabra

      This is a very good question! In order to identify your distractions, it is beneficial to write them down where you can see them, in order to remind yourself what it is that is distracting you. This way you can take a look at it and clearly avoid it when these distractions come about again.

    What do you mean by four pomodoro?

    1. kartik chhabra

      Sorry if it was a bit confusing. By “four Pomodoro”, it means doing the Pomodoro Technique four times, then taking a 30-minute break! Hope this clarifies the confusion.

        Does 1 pomodoro = 25mins?
        1 pomodoro = (25mins study + 5mins break) + (25mins study + 5mins break) + (25mins study + 5mins break) + (25mins study + 5mins break)??

        1. Minori

          1 pomodoro = 25 minutes of focusing (and hopefully being productive)!

        Would it help with ADHD ?

        1. sarah robertson

          I would recommend trying the Pomodoro method and then seeing if it works for you! Different methods of time management work for different people, and you never know until you try. I would recommend testing any study method for at least two study sessions to see whether or not you are being productive. If not, try a different method until you find what works best.
