Forget saying ‘I will work all day!’ We need focused chunks of time in flow. Ignore your phone and GO! I loved using my sand timers. I have a 15, 30 and 60 minute sand timer. Great just to flip it and BOOM I’m working and I know there is a delicious break ahead of me.
The pomodoro technique works on this principle; 25 minutes of focused work and then a 5 minute break. It’s a wonderful system. 25 minutes is easy to achieve but a good time to get some hard work done. I love this Pihen timer on Amazon. Just tip it onto a 25 minute time and then flip to 5 for a proud break. I’m going to order a second one I like them that much.
This set of sand timers are also great.
