 “The Pomodoro Technique”is the idea by a student in the 1980’s, Francesco Cirillo. Using a timer with preset times for working and having a break could help you to stop procrastinating and structure your time.  
Let’s POMODORO! Try it out by following the sequence below:  

Shut off all distractions (your phone, TV, your music, a friend, etc.) 
Set the timer for 25 minutes 
Get going and focus on the task for 25 minutes 
When the 25 minutes are up, reward yourself with a 5 minute break 
Going through the above points means you are “doing a pomodoro”!!!! 

After doing Four (4) pomodoros – you earn a longer break (15 – 30 minutes) 
REPEAT steps as needed to complete your homework or ANY other task.  


And why might you ask is a pomodoro timer 25 minutes long? That is exactly the right time to help you not procrastinate, be productive, create urgency and help you stay focused on any task you are tackling.
