Pomodoro Technique: How to use the 5-minute break

You were entirely focused on using the Pomodoro technique for the day but there was one question that popped up in your mind, What should I do in the 5minute break?

You should know, that taking a break means doing something that is refreshing for your body and mind so scrolling through social media doesn’t consider a break.

It is always a better choice to move distracting things away from you while using Pomodoro Technique.

The key part is to do something different from what you have been doing. Therefore we are going to provide you with some examples you should do during your break…

What you should be doing in the 5-minute break?

  • Wim hof breathing
  • Short walk
  • Little exercise (maybe like 15 pushups, sit-ups, or squats)
  • Stretch
  • Meditate
  • Chores work like sweeping, dusting, window washing, and more
  • Refresh your coffee/tea/water
  • Solve a 5-minute puzzle
  • Write whatever is on your mind
  • Play a song you love
  • Try dancing by playing a song


These are some of the best things you should do in your break still, there are more, a lot of people are using their 5miniut break with Wim Hof Breathing so I personally suggest you try this breathing technique.

Now you know what you should do so go out there and work hard for your dreams with consistency and productive use of time.
