Does the pomodoro technique work?

Janet S.
It is according to the person if the person is determined yes but if the person is not ready to struggle then no. I am sure you are a determined person. All the best buddy.

Samantha O.
Yes, however I don’t follow the 25.5 method but rather the 50. 10 as it creates space for more productivity and doesn’t disrupt the productive flow as often as the 25.5 method

Wilma O.
In my opinion yes. It gives you a pause to recall the things you just learned, so you still keep learning even if you don’t study at the time. I always find myself studying for several hours thanks to this technique! Because of the short breaks I don’t get frustrated so easily and have enough energy to continue studying after several hours.

Sara N.
I don't have much knowledge but I just researched it.
1-Decide your tasks.
2-Set a timer for 25 minutes and work.
3-After the time is up, take a break for 5 mins.
4-Repeat steps 2 & 3 to have 4 cycles.
5-After the 4th cycle, take a 30 minute break.
6-You can repeat this process until you're satisfied with what you've accomplished.

A lot of people seem to have success with it. It doesn't work for me personally. The frequent breaks make maintaining a flow/deep state during work impossible.

It's more for people who 1) would benefit from frequent breaks, 2) have no issues restarting something after being away for a bit, or 3) need motivation to start something they've been putting off.

Andr Ia Q.
I haven't literally done it before but my method is after every one hour of working/studying I take a 15 minute break so yeah I feel like it does work

Raul N.
I’ve found it does! In my experience it took me a bit to get the hang of it, since I’m used to working for long periods of time, but once I started it’s really been a great way to work and keep myself organized and not tired.

Zain F.
Yes it really does, especially for people who start a new task (eg studying) and have been admittedly incompetent/lazy since a while. I do 25 minutes which stretches to 45/50 usually and take 10/20 min breaks in between ( or sometimes an hour);; try it out!!

Michael N.
i do believe its good to set in the habit for someone who gets easily distracted. but for me i used to use it, then slowly up the time to 1 hour. and after some time i realised i didnt need it and i would still do work. it is a great way to see what you have done. a good pomodoro app is the chrome extension!

Margitta E.
Yes this does because I feel I am changing due to these fantastic habits. The challenges give me a new purpose in life thanks to this app’s guides.

I have used in in my academic studies to great effect. It's a great way to break up a large project into smaller 25-min increments to be completed over a longer period of time. Helps focus on a task for improved deep work experience.

pomodoro has its pros and cons. however i do believe you can use how it works as a way to guide your study session. i started with pomodoro as a way to get myself to want to study because its a 25 mins session. after some time i increased the study time up to 1 hour and now i dont use it because i have enough mental power to tell myself to study. i do believe its good to set in the habit as it acts as a good measurement of how much you have done.

Britney B.
For me it does. However it does take a bit to get into the rythm of it or to get used to it. When i get back into studying it usually takes a day or two until i can sit through the 25:5 minutes. It helps if you don't go on your phone or read in the break and rather strech or do a short exersise.

*Our brain needs protein when we sleep to understand all the info we received today, so eating a high protein meal in the evening helps to… even though that has nothing to do with the pomodoro technique

Fadwa F.
It does for me! It’s a very fun technique to study that doesn’t really tire me , there’s a bunch of other techniques for studying if you didn’t enjoy or the pomodoro technique wasn’t for you!

Melissa T.
If you ask me, yes! It gives your brain a few minutes to relax and refresh, and gives you a form of reward to look forward to!

Harriet S.
Umm. Sometimes it works for me. It depends on the app I'm using too. I remember using the Pomodoro technique for my final exams one time and I was impressed with myself. I don't like using it when I'm doing project stuffs. Feels slow

G Tz F.
I would say for me personally, yes. You can adjust the length of 25 minutes to where it feels comfortable. Or instead use your work to guy you – I will read x amount of pages then break. The important thing is to take breaks. It organizes your work and prevents strain.

Barbara Z.
I'm not sure what the pomodoro technique is but I like the app so far, it's very inspiring. It's almost a week that I have gotten myself together with this app.

Sophia E.
yes definitely it gives me a chance for a break and also to be focused throughout the session

i know that there are dips in productivity, memory and also retention when studying for an hour or more without having breaks

Jayli E.
I am a slow coach but that works best for me so I accept the way I am…I need heart full stimulation to fasten up…. or it’s difficult… I think ur Komodo technique is best because we can overcome any problem by strict practice without distractions… thankful to your question 👍

Victoria Z.
i have not tried this technique but with what i read it does seem to be useful. Since the article says how it’s when you work for around 20-30 minutes and then take a 5 minute break in between pomodores and every 4 pomodores you have a 15-30 minute break which does sound useful. I think with these breaks it will give you time to have to spend on something else like going on your phone or reading which will help you not want to do it during the work time.

Ca N.
maybe yes, but for me i'm not gonna do that and not gonna try it bcs im not impressed and i think its not really that work bcs it give you time to rest then work rest then work again and again that could make tired.
Then i wear my own self technique which is help me more.
i did my homework like all of that from 1 task then i could rest. Then i repeat it until each task/1 by 1 task done.

Abigail Q.
I have actually just started using this method and personally I think the 5 minute increments are too short lol so I use 7-10 minutes for my short breaks but I do think it helps to keep me on track, so I would say that it works! Hope this helps

Mahira X.
I've tried to do pomodoro and that worked. I was in dense pressure so anything would've been worked. Do try it. If ot doesn't work for yiu then leave it. But you have to stay focused
So before trying get rid of all the distractions.

Funke T.
Yes it does. It helps you focus and you'd gain traction with little but powerful steps in the right direction.

The key to making this work though is identifying and scheduling your most important task or top priority task first. It is important to identify the 20% work that will yield the 80% result.

Janis F.
yes for me it works perfectly, i can seperate my things i wanna do in time phases and then i play my fabulous moment and it has a timer. I end my for example homework when those 45min are over 🙂 that‘s really nice and i feel better

Jordan O.
Idek know what that is hold on…..oh that’s what you call it school ain’t teaching me nothing ya but I have tried it and it works pretty well but I forget sometimes

Khaira N.
I think every people have their own style to focus while doing something. But for me, while I using the pomodoro technique is working!! You can feel the time goes so fast but at once, your work is almost done..or even done! Usually, I will make a timer 25 minutes for study as I am a student and 5 minutes for a rest. I hope this technique can help many people to be more focus and finish all their works faster 🙂

Olfa N.
Yes if you focus on the way you do the way you work the way you want to be organized, the promodo techniques will work with you.

Tablo N.
I am quite sure they don’t work for me. Many of my tasks need longer than 25 minutes. I am using one hour Intervalls instead. One hour for the task and 10 min break. But you will have to find out which one helps you best with your tasks.

Bokuto S T.
It can work for different kinds of people!! For me personally it does work since I study more often and can focus for a long time I do use those 25 minutes plus a little more than that to do any work. It could work for you, it may not but it’s always ok to try
