Pomodoro Technique

If you're looking to boost your studying game, there's no shortage of productivity hacks out there. One strategy that's gaining popularity is the Pomodoro Technique, which promises to help you power through even the lengthiest study sessions.

It might sound counterintuitive, but taking breaks can actually make you more productive. And that's exactly what the Pomodoro Technique is all about: strategically breaking up your study sessions to maximize your focus and retention. With 25 minutes of studying followed by 5 minutes of rest, you'll be amazed at how much you can accomplish.


  • If you're the type of person who gets easily distracted, consider using an app to help you stay on task. There are plenty of options out there, from simple timers to more complex productivity tools that can help you manage your time and track your progress. I'm using the Forest app, which is available on the Apps store or play store. This app has cute features that encourage users to plant more

  • Feeling lonely or unmotivated during your study sessions? Try tuning "study with me" videos on YouTube. These videos feature other students studying alongside you, providing a sense of community and accountability that can help you stay focused and motivated. There are a lot of videos available, so just find something that suits you. Personally, I enjoy watching videos that feature nice backgrounds and relaxing music. Abao in Tokyo Channel is one of my favorites

  • Want to take your virtual study session to the next level? Consider joining a Zoom study group with friends or even strangers. Studies have shown that studying with others can help improve your retention and comprehension, and having a group to hold you accountable can also help you stay on track. And if you're the type who finds it easier to focus around strangers, even better! I'm using studystream website to find a zoom room and study with strangers.

Best of luck in your studies, everyone!
