Taking Breaks From Work

The use of task time tracking technology like in the case of Stay focused is based on the Pomodoro concept, which has been introduced by Francesco Cirillo. With this, a Pomodoro timer is used for the purpose of breaking down work into smaller portions, usually in a period of 25 minutes. The short breaks in between the completion of work are known to be highly influential in making people productive and mentally agile in their work.

Reviews

It's easier to use than some of the so-called productivity suites It's easier to use than some of the so-called productivity suites Stayfocused is an amazing productivity tool. The recommended interval is 45 minutes of work to 5 minutes of break time, though each can be changed to suit. The tool creates Tasks, which can do just about anything you need them to, such as launch applications, open a document, open a Web site, and set a background. The built-in Task Report tool makes it easy to track and report your time. It offers a lot more than the typical work-and-break timer, yet it's easier to set up and use than some of the so-called productivity suites.

An ideal solution for those who have a habit of wasting time during work hours An ideal solution for those who have a habit of wasting time during work hours Stayfocused Pro basically works like this: you create a new task that you want to perform, set the computer activities that you can use and a time limit under which you want to complete the task and save it. When you start working on the task, the program will prohibit you from performing computer activities irrelevant to the task, i.e. others than the ones you added when creating that task. After 45 minutes of working on the task, you get to enjoy a 5-minute break and do whatever you want; when the break is over, you get back to working on your task, until you get another 5-minute break. This cycle is repeated until the task is finished.
