    I incorporated this a few months ago after reading about it on the Buffer blog. I totally stand by it. I do a lot of programming and analytical work, and I used to get worn out (and SORE) after working for hours. I stand up fairly regularly, but it’d still happen. Since switching to working in 90-120-minute periods and then taking 20-30 minute breaks, I haven’t felt as worn out after the day. I wouldn’t say I have much more energy; I’m not exactly sure how to describe it. It’s a good thing, though.

    One thing that the Buffer blog went into more is that the ultradian rhythm can vary a bit from person to person. I’m not sure if I’ve formed a habit or what, but I sort of have a sense of it now. The first couple work sessions in a day I can often go for 120 minutes (which is the upper bound). Usually this drops to 90 after that, and in the evening I feel more like taking 30-minute breaks. I try to keep them to 20 before that. My breaks are often way too long. Using a timer usually helps with this.

    Do any workplaces support this rhythm? I’ve been working for myself for so long that I have no clue what current workplace practices are.
