What is the pomodoro method? How can you use it for video game addiction?
When you are dealing with a video game addiction it is very easy for hours to pass by without even noticing or moving away the screen/device you are using. This makes the process of recovery extremely hard because you are not removing yourself from the situation causing the addiction to begin with. But, how can someone who is addicted to something self-regulate in a way that reduces the play time? Enter the Pomodoro method.
According to Wikipedia:
The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. The technique uses a timer to break down work into intervals, traditionally 25 minutes in length, separated by short breaks.
