Take time for yourself: A study tip from the Fulton Schools tutors

Posted by on Feb 11, 2020 in Resources, Students |

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the tasks you have to complete you should try out the Pomodoro Technique. The Pomodoro Technique is a method of breaking tasks down into more manageable chunks and allowing your brain to rest in between.

Start by listing all the tasks that need completion and set a timer for 25 minutes to focus completely on the first task. Once the 25 minutes are up, set a 5-minute timer and take a break! You can do whatever you want during this time.

When your break is up, move on to another 25 minutes of the next task followed by another 5-minute break. Repeat this cycle four times, and take a 30 minute break at the end.

Scheduling in time to be distracted is actually a great way to keep yourself focused when you actually need to work. When you’re working you know that you have a definite break for relief.

We hope this study technique helps you stay focused and also take some time take care of yourself. Stop by your Fulton Schools Tutoring Centers and ask us for some more study tips!
