If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the tasks you have to complete you should try out the Pomodoro Technique. The Pomodoro Technique is a method of breaking tasks down into more manageable chunks and allowing your brain to rest in between. Start by listing all the tasks that need completion and set a timer for 25 minutes to focus completely on the first task. Once the 25 minutes are up, set a 5 minute timer and take a break! You can do whatever you want during this time. When your break is up move on to another 25 minutes of the next task followed by another 5 minute break. Repeat this cycle 4 times, and take a 30 minute break at the end. Scheduling in time to be distracted is actually a great way to keep yourself focused when you actually need to work. When you’re working you know that you have a definite break for relief. We hope this study technique helps you stay focused and also take some time take care of yourself.
