Other studies, such as The Pomodoro Technique, a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo, advises similar time lapses between recesses: a 15 to 30-minute break every 90 minutes.
There are a lot of activities you can do in your breaks, right? You can read, study, watch the news, listening to music, have a coffee or snacks, watch an episode of your favourite series, nap for a little bit or just watch yourself in the mirror!
