A way to work with the time you have even when you’re busy
If you’re reading this, you may already know first-hand how the magic of Focusmate takes 50 minutes of your day and turns it into real, visible progress on your goals.
But let’s face it—you don’t always have a full hour, you may only have a few things to do, or you may just simply not have the energy for that commitment.
As of today, we’ve made it easier to stay on track with your goals with 25-minute sessions. 🎉
These shorter sessions can help you knock out quicker tasks like:
- Staying focused between meetings or class
- Morning & evening routines
- Meditation or journaling
- Daily or weekly planning
Why 25 minutes?
These sessions are designed to be compatible with the Pomodoro Technique in which you commit to focusing on work for 25 minutes at a time with 5-minute breaks in between. This simple time management system helps you stay focused while giving you the rest you need, and our 25-minute sessions are perfect for stringing multiple Pomodoro sessions together.
How to book a 25-minute session
Booking a 25-minute session is just as easy as booking a 50-minute session. Here’s how to do it:
- On the calendar: From your dashboard, select the “25m” toggle above the calendar, click the starting time you prefer within the calendar, and then confirm your session by clicking “Continue to book 1 session.”
Tip: You can book more than one session at once! Simply click on multiple time slots in the calendar and then confirm them all in a single click.
2. From the sidebar: On the left side of your dashboard, click the ‘Book a Session’ button to get started with specifying your session details.
Note: Just as with 50-minute sessions, you can also book 25-minute sessions starting every 15 minutes on the :00, :15, :30 and :45.
