Set a 20 Minute Timer and 5 Minute Breaks


Set a timer so that you know you have to focus for 20 straight minutes without any distractions; no social media or texting. That way you know that when that 20 minutes of focus is up, you can take a 5-minute break from the intensity, grab a snack, catch up on what you missed on Instagram, and come back fresh and ready to go.

I use a chrome extension with a built in Pomodoro timer and blocks social media sites for the 20-25 min study and opens them back up during my break. it's been really helpful for keeping on task
