Doing Pomodoros

Tomato, in Italian, is pomodoro. I learned today that there is something called The Pomodoro Technique.  You can check out here. This has nothing to do with spaghetti sauce, but rather involves setting setting a kitchen timer for 25 minutes, then doing _______ (fill in the blank) until the timer goes off.  There’s a Pomodoro book,  Pomodoro courses, and even Pomodoro meet-ups -so, obviously, there’s a bit more to it than just setting a timer.  But, just setting the timer was good enough for me today. I power-pomodored through cleaning this morning and practicing piano finger exercises this afternoon. I plan to “do a pomodoro” every time I need help settling down to a task. Since I don’t settle well, I’ll probably wear out my timer by February. No matter.  It’ll give me an excuse to buy a cute  little tomato one!

  1. This is a great idea and I love your resolution to post One Thousand Gifts. I do believe that if we focus on the positive we invite more into our lives.

    For some reason I have not been getting your postings until today. Did you change a setting? I can see that I have missed quite a few. Things seem to be working now, though, so I am glad to have you back!

    Happy New Year to you and your loved ones! xx
