Productivity Timer

Focusing on tasks can be hard at times. So we like to use the Pomodoro technique when focusing on important tasks.

With the Pomodoro technique, you focus on a task for 25 minutes giving it all your attention, and then take a 5-minute break. And repeat the process.

The Productivity Timer is a simple timer you flip on its side that begins to count down for your focus sprints.

Yes, you can use your phone as a timer, but our phones are also a distraction, so trying to remove distractions when focusing on important work is important. Learn more about the Pomodoro technique here.
