It’s Wiki Wednesday! Once a month we highlight a helpful post from the Wiki with tips about productivity, wellness, and optimizing your use of Habitica!
One of the major productivity techniques people on Habitica talk about is the Pomodoro: a 25-minute stint of focused work, followed by a five-minute break… and then another 25-minute stretch of focused work. It’s called a Pomodoro after the tomato-shaped timer originally used by Francesco Crillo, who came up with the technique. Guilds on Habitica take it to the extreme with tomato throwing contests, prizes for those who complete the most ‘poms’, and a whole wealth of challenges related to the technique.
So this week’s highlighted Wiki post is all about how to use that technique alongside your Habitica setup:
The simplest way to use Habitica to support the Pomodoro technique is to use a mechanical device like a kitchen timer or an electronic device to time each Pomodoro. Players then track their activity manually on Habitica with a combination of Habits, Dailies, and potentially Rewards.
By creating a Habit for each completed Pomodoro and optionally a second Habit for each completed set, Habiticans can track how many Pomodori they complete in a day.
