Tech Know With Tantra- Pomodoro Timer

The Pomodoro Technique is a popular time management method developed in the late 80’s, that helps break down your work into 25 minute intervals, separated by short breaks. These intervals are named ‘pomodoros’, the plural in English of the Italian word for tomato. The technique has been scientifically proven to improve productivity and aid assimilation. Just pick a task you need to accomplish and set a timer for 25 minutes and start working.  When the timer rings, take a 3-5 minute break. And, every fourth break should be long (15-25 minutes). The lite version is free and helps you with one task at a time while the pro (paid) version helps you with multiple tasks, history and many more features.
