Discussion on: How do you take breaks throughout the day?

I got pretty good using a Pomodoro timer in the office recently, after a spell of burning myself out staring at my screen for pretty much 8 hours straight.

I found getting up and walking out the back of the office round the garden area they have, then back to my desk was exactly 5 mins.

I'm still having issues using Pomodoros at home strangely. I need to keep trying but I seem to get too focused on work and forget about it.

Listening to records is a good shout, but even then I don't always remember to get up and change sides. Need to try harder!
