Take Ownership of Your Time & Energy with the Pomodoro Technique

It’s been how many days now since you unplugged?

If you’re like the majority of functional health practitioners I work with, you probably keep yourself busy…constantly. This derails our balance, screws with our mental focus, and therefore completely interferes with building our dream life—our WELLthy life.

We NEED time to reflect and reconnect with what really matters. Unstructured time, breaks, play, rest & relaxation—all of these are vital to our productivity. 

If there's one thing I've learned from working with busy practitioners, it's that we can be experts at getting in our own way.

One way to put a stop to this: owning our time and energy, instead of allowing it to own us.

Optimal health is always at the top of my mind and I’m always looking at things from a holistic perspective. And that includes productivity and time management.

Imagine this: it’s entirely possible to live a life of health and ease AND be an entrepreneur with soaring productivity levels. (*cue big sigh of relief*)

I like to use something called the Pomodoro Technique. (Yes, that’s Italian for tomato.)

This method uses gamified goal setting, alternating focused work sessions with frequent short breaks to promote sustained concentration and stave off mental fatigue. It allows our system to relax and detox metabolic byproducts between work sprints, which helps improve our brain function.

This technique is great if you:

🍅find little distractions often derail the whole workday
🍅consistently work past the point of optimal productivity
🍅have lots of open-ended work that could take unlimited amounts of time (e.g., studying for an exam, research for a blog post, etc.)
🍅are overly optimistic when it comes to how much you can get done in a day

Here’s how it works:

  • Step 1: pick a task
  • Step 2: set a 25-minute timer
  • Step 3: work on your task until your time is up
  • Step 4: take a 5-minute break (this completes 1 Pomodoro)
  • Step 5: every 4 Pomodoros, take a longer 15-30 minute break

This is just one of the time management tools I teach inside the WELLth MentorshipTry it out and let me know how it goes!
