Somehow reached to this tacky/clickbaity title “How the smartphone is destroying you from inside” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HjC245ugW8. Probably from the past few days, putting my head to these distractions. They seem to me like modern day alcoholic drinks. You enjoy it and forget your problems, similar promises made by alcoholic drinks.

So the point video makes is, the time we invest in these addictive systems(there whole KPI is to make stay people on their website) is anyways gone, but there are more far reaching impact because of it.

Solution

So the problem is defined and most of us are aware of it and we need solutions. One such technique if you have lower focus time is to use pomodoro technique, created by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s.

Short note on pomodoro technique which helps me

  1. Fix tasks you want to work on.
  2. Work in done is this timebox manner: loop(25 - 5 - 25 - 5 - 25 - 5 - 25 - 15 ) OR loop(25 - 5 - 25 - 5 - 25 - 15-)
  3. Focus work for 25 mins
  4. Take 5 mins break, no phones here, usually a little walk, sometimes water and relax at times
  5. Continue this for 3 times.
  6. Take a longer break for the 4th time. Continue and repeat.
