Focus comes with a Productivity Timer, but also has a built-in Pomodoro Timer, making it easier for you to manage your work and break times efficiently.
A Pomodoro Timer divides your work into short, focused sessions with breaks in between. Normally, you work for 25 minutes and then take a 5 or 10-minute break. After a few cycles, you get a longer break.
The Pomodoro Method helps in several key ways:
- Splits work into manageable parts.
- Makes it easier to start.
- Encourages taking regular breaks.
- Helps you stay focused.
To activate the Pomodoro Timer in Focus, click the Focus icon at the top of your screen. Then click the Tomato icon at the bottom right to switch to Pomodoro Mode.
Focus allows you to easily select the number of work rounds, helping you get started on tasks right away.
Using Locked Mode ensures you complete the work period before moving to a break. This helps maintain your focus.
To change the default settings, go to Focus preferences. You can adjust the length of work periods, short breaks, and long breaks to better match your work style.
Focus stands out because it's not just a Pomodoro Timer. It's also a distraction blocker. By combining these two, you get a productivity tool that is both powerful and effective.
Focus streamlines your work routine and enhances your productivity. Its well-crafted features make it ideal for anyone aiming to accomplish more in a shorter time.
Now that you're familiar with the Pomodoro Timer, you might also want to explore the Schedules feature to further optimize your workday.
