Tomighty is a free desktop Pomodoro timer that helps to manage a task by dividing task time into intervals which include short breaks as well. This tool is based on popular Pomodoro Technique that lets you set 25 minutes time intervals for a task, which also include breaks. But Tomighty is a bit different as here you can set custom time (in minutes) for a task and for short breaks as well. A long break with user-defined time can also be set for a task.
You can set multiple pomodoros for different tasks and can start your work. By default, four short breaks will occur while working on a task, but you can skip any short break to move to a long break.
Screenshot above shows Options window of Tomighty where you can set task time, short break time, and long break time. After this, you can start pomodoro. Once pomodoro time will be finished, a pop up will open up to decide whether you want to take break or not. If short break is selected, then short break time will start, and this sequence will continue, until you stop the Pomodoro timer.

Time for selected break will start and you can take rest. It would be a good idea to perform some eye exercises during rest. Once the break will over, you can start pomodoro again (if task is not finished yet).
