Break time

Starts a "Break" session for 5 minutes in the Focus app, after which it will send an alert that the break is over and it's time to resume working.

This shortcut is useful to keep around not only as a way to control Focus, but as a reminder to actually take breaks when working.

Focus’ 20-25 minute sessions and 5 minute breaks have truly helped me push through longer periods of work because I give myself permission to take the breaks I’m supposed to, which in turn makes the working periods more sustainable and less draining.

I also have an alternate that starts my espresso machine as well 😜
