Pomodoro techniques

1. Classic Pomodoro Technique: Work for 25 minutes, then take a 5-minute break. After completing four cycles, take a longer break of around 15-30 minutes.

2. Extended Pomodoro: Work for 50 minutes and then take a 10-minute break. This variation is useful for tasks that require more concentration.

3. Short Break Pomodoro: Work for 25 minutes, but take a shorter break of 3 minutes instead of 5.

4. Progressive Pomodoro: Start with the standard 25-minute work interval and incrementally increase the work time by 5 minutes in subsequent cycles. For instance, 25-30-35 minutes and so on.

5. Reverse Pomodoro: Instead of timing your work, time your break. For example, work for 10 minutes and then take a 5-minute break.

6. Two-Minute Rule: If a task takes less than 2 minutes, do it immediately. If not, add it to your to-do list and tackle it during the next Pomodoro cycle.

7. Flowtime Technique: Determine a specific task, set a timer for 25 minutes, and give it your full focus without interruptions. After that, take a break and repeat.

8. Pomodoro with Themes: Assign a theme to each Pomodoro cycle, focusing on a particular aspect of your work or a specific project.

9. The 52-17 Rule: Similar to the Pomodoro Technique, this involves working for 52 minutes and then taking a 17-minute break. It's based on the idea that the brain can focus intensely for around 52 minutes.

Remember, the key is to find what works best for you and adjust the intervals based on your attention span and task requirements.
