How To Use The Pomodoro Timer
A timer should be in the bottom right hand corner of your screen.
It looks like this
When you click on the timer it will begin the first 45 minutes of your sprint. You can see how far in to your sprint you are by hovering your mouse cursor over the timer.
After 45 minutes the timer will stop and tell you to take a break for two minutes before continuing for another 45 minutes of work. After you have completed 90 minutes you should take a break for 30 minutes before continuing to work.
We have chosen these times for two reasons. Firstly it has been proven that your brain can concentrate for no longer than 90 minutes at a time before you lose focus. But we also know that if you sit for more than an hour each day your chances of an early death increase by 55%. So we want to get you moving regularly, whilst also ensuring you get maximum productivity in your day.
