The 20-20-20 rule seems hard to follow practically - especially when you are lost in the code and are thinking about the problem intensely.

The problem I generally see with all these "rules" is that they do not accommodate natural human behaviour or the rhythms of the workplace. So even though they seem simple to follow - it actually requires a lot of effort and hinders the person. They are too rigid.
