See gap areas by hovering mouse over the Incomplete lab as in the figure shown.

3 Paying attention

If you find it difficult to complete the longer labs (more than 45 mins), see How to use Pomodoro. Simply,
  • Work in 25 min chunks
  • Take a 5 min break
  • In the break, either take a walk or
  • reflect on the steps you have followed.
