If you’re looking for ways to be a bit more productive, the Pomodoro technique can be a good place to start. The technique, which was developed in the early 90s by developer Francesco Cirillo, involves breaking down large tasks into short, timed intervals. Cirillo called those intervals Pomodoros, in part because he timed them out using a kitchen timer that looked like a tomato.

Many people swear by the Pomodoro Technique, a strategy for sprinting through tasks to get more done, while allowing for brain-resting breaks. You don't need a Pomodoro timer to apply this -- just use regular, limited-time "real life" events for your timer.
