Study more efficiently

Learn the Pomodoro Technique

Have you heard of the Pomodoro Technique? It’s a time management technique, developed in the 1980’s by Italian Francesco Cirillo. Cirillo studied at university and (like many of us!) wanted to get more done in less time. Pomodoro is Italian for tomato and refers to the timer which Cirillo used to monitor his time when studying.

The technique is very simple: give a specific task your undivided attention for a set period of time, then take a break, then start again. Thinking you only need to work for a little while also makes it’s easier to get going with things that aren’t to fun. Want to learn the Pomodoro Technique to study more efficiently? This is how it’s done:

  • Choose a task to focus on.
  • Set the timer for 25 minutes – one pomodoro.
  • Work until the timer rings.
  • Take a short break (5 minutes).
  • Set the timer and work for another 25 minutes.
  • Every 4 pomodoros, take a longer break (20-30 minutes).

Work without distractions for a full 25 minutes. If you get disturbed, start over. When you take a break, make sure to do something unrelated to work – stand up, take a walk, grab something to drink.

Do you have a technique for studying? Do you manage your time somehow? Tell us over on instagram: @livetogrow_student!
