Have you tried the Pomodoro Technique?

It could help you fit crafting into your busy schedule! It’s really helpful for many people; and for anybody with a watch or timer, it’s free!

Pomodoro (which means “tomato” in Italian) was invented by Francesco Cirillo in the 1980s and named after the tomato-shaped kitchen timer in his home. The technique is simple:

1. Pick a task, set a timer, and work on the task for 25 minutes.

2. Stop when the timer goes off, even if you haven’t finished.

3. Take a 5-10-minute break before moving on to the next 25-minute task.

4. After every four 25-minute sessions, take a 25-30-minute break; then start again.

If crafting is important enough to you, then you may be able to dedicate 25 minutes of your day to it! You might be amazed at what you accomplish, especially knowing you only have 25 minutes to get it done. You should still take your time and enjoy yourself, but you can also challenge yourself to see what you can do in the time alotted!

Here’s a free Pomodoro timer that’s so easy to use.
