The Pomodoro Technique ⏲️ a popular productivity hack adapted to work with my neurodivergent brain.
The traditional approach to the Pomodoro technique doesn't work for me, but I've found great productivity in this adaptation of it.

Here's why:

It involves setting a timer for 25 minutes of focused work, then taking a 5-minute break, repeating this three times, and then taking a longer 15-minute break.

It takes me a little while, but once I start working, I focus deeply and lose track of time (some call this hyperfocus, others call it flow). Switching from work to break time quickly leaves me feeling stressed. 😀

BUT, the Pomodoro Technique is helpful because it reminds me to take breaks (otherwise, I would work myself to exhaustion).

So, doing 100 minutes of focused work with a 30-minute break works better.

✨Both add up to 130 minutes, but I can do much more with the alternative approach. ✨
