What is Pomodoro Timer
The Pomodoro timer is a simple time management tool that can be used to improve your productivity. The Pomodoro Technique was developed by Francesco Cirillo for a more productive way to work and study. The basic idea is to break down your work into smaller chunks and to take regular breaks in between. The Pomodoro timer helps you to do this by dividing your time into 25-minute intervals, with 5-minute breaks in between. After 4 Pomodoros (or 100 minutes), you take a longer break of 10 minutes. The Pomodoro timer is a great way to stay focused and avoid burnout. It can also help you to track your progress and see how much you have accomplished at the end of the day.
