and I want to pause my Workflow for 1 minute:

But this 1 minute has a delay of 5 minutes...
Is there a way to fix this?

The pause in Workflow is used by SharePoint Timer Job, when the timer job runs, the workflow run.

The default time is 5 minutes. So If something starts at 15:02, at 15:05 the timer job will process. Note that this time can be extended if the timer job cannot complete all the tasks. Eg. 15:02 starts, but only at 15:10 timer job can complete the request to "unpause" the workflow.

You can change in CA the timer job processing time, but you should know that maybe in 1 minute is not enough to process everything.

    It's in central admin. Do you have access to that? – Steve Lineberry Aug 21 '14 at 19:43

    Here is SharePoint 2013, but in Central Administration it is the same menus of 2010: i60.tinypic.com/i1bnra.png – Victor Martins Aug 21 '14 at 19:45
