I wonder what science says about how to set learning time. Specificially I wonder about how to mix learning and free time. This is of course related to the attention span.
My rhythm looks the following, but I have never seen a source proofing it.
- Study/code/work for 45min
- Do a 5min break (get some fresh air)
- Work another 45min
- Get 10mins break
- Another 45min work
- 5min break
- 45min work
- at least 30min break
- Start again from 1
I know that people differ in their ability to stay focused, but there are physical limits as well.
I bet there are plenty of studies on work efficiencies, so I would be glad to hear about them.
