Try the Pomodoro Technique

The “Pomodoro Technique” might be the ticket if you struggle with distractions and remaining focused on projects. Developed by Francesco Cirillo, a business consultant, the approach to managing time requires a kitchen timer and breaking work into short, focused intervals (typically 25 minutes) called “Pomodoros.” Separate these with five-minute breaks. After four Pomodoros, take a longer break (15-30 minutes). The Pomodoro Technique helps you maintain focus and productivity, but it also helps you avoid burnout and mental fatigue from arduous tasks. There’s a bonus; you eventually become more efficient at prioritizing tasks and avoiding distractions even when not using the technique.
