When you plan to study for a while, everything can go wrong. First of all, the minute you get a notification on your phone, you should know that it’s game over. And then there’s also the fact that other distractions are going to pop into your head. Luckily, there’s a simple mind hack that can help you get hours of studying done in a natural way.

It’s called the Pomodoro Technique. And as weird as that sounds, it does help you get things done. Here’s how it works.

You’ll Need A TImer

The first thing that you want to do is to set a timer for 25 minutes. You can just use a timer app on your phone (most phones come with one in-built!). After setting your 25 minute timer, you start your task (set a goal you want to get done in 25 minutes). If any distractions come into your head, write them down on a piece of paper.

When your 25 minutes are up, take a 5-minute break. You can use that break to get a snack, stretch and look at the distractions that popped into your head. The 25-minutes studying and your 5-minute break make one Pomodoro.

After 4 Pomodoros take a 30-minute break. And then repeat!

Try It Out

The Pomodoro technique has many advantages; including the fact that you get a better sense of how you’re spending time. It also also allows you to study longer because the study session is broken into more digestible pieces.
