Two hourglasses in this set: a 30 and a 5 minute one for pomodoros and productivity!
They are a favorite time-keeper of ours when using the Pomodoro technique. A key part of the Pomodoro method is to give yourself a set period of uninterrupted work time (30 minutes) followed by a short period of rest (5 minutes). Repeat this in several intervals, and then take a longer break. This method helps to minimize interruptions, decrease burnout, and increase motivation.
We prefer using analog hourglasses or simple timers when doing Pomodoros rather than our phones because it minimizes the potential for digital distraction.
This set includes everything you need:
- Large set: the 30 minute hourglass is 6.5 inches tall, the 5 minute one is 3.3 inches and include a wooden base for each hourglass to rest on.
- Medium set: the 30 min hourglass is 5.6 inches tall and the 5 minute hourglass is 3.2 inches tall without wooden bases.
Also, they look gorgeous on your desk, so that's a win too.
