The Pomodoro technique was developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. The Pomodoro technique is based on the idea that the working hours should be broken into pieces and completed with breaks in split times of 25 minutes. After 25 minutes, you take a short 5-minute break. This is called a “pomodoro”. Depending on the amount of work you can have 4 pomodoros in a row. After every 4 pomodoros you can take 20-30 minute long breaks.
Let’s look at the answer to the question of how to effectively use the Pomodoro technique. We will list this with some below.
