Set A Gamified Pomodoro Timer To Benefit From Parkinson’s Law (Forest App)

The Forest App is a gamified mobile timer for productivity. The longer you stay focused, the healthier the trees in your virtual forest will grow. Navigate away from the app due to phone distraction? The trees wither. Set a Pomodoro timer in the app (25 minutes on, 5 minutes off) for a cadence of optimally focused energy. Chunking down work to 25 minutes of pure focus is useful because the time period is cognitively challenging but psychology feels attainable. You’ll also be tapping into Parkinson’s Law—which teaches that work expands to fill the allotted time for an activity. By introducing a Pomodoro deadline, you’ll get more done. Simple—but an advanced idea.
