I been having trouble focusing, so I started using the Pomodoro technique to see if it would help. At first I thought "how can anyone focus for 25 minutes on one thing", but it turns out that if you take regular breaks, it's much easier to focus. Who would've thought?

@jaranta I'm also using Pomodoro (and have done it since many years). By now I have gotten much more liberal with my timing. Typically I do 2 pomodoros without break (i.e. 45-50 minutes). It works a bit better that way. But then also depending on the situation, I'd sometimes do 3 or just 1. But I recommend never ever doing more than 3.
