It's becoming increasingly clear that our bodies were not built to spend hour after hour in a chair. Research shows that too much sitting is seriously detrimental to our health, and short bursts of exercise does not completely help with that.

However, just by taking regular breaks, you can undo much of the damage. Not only your back, shoulder, neck, arms and hands and eyes are helped by breaks, but also your general health.

By taking regular breaks, you can actually increase your productivity by becoming more focused and energized.

Break Reminder will help with this without getting in your way. Some of the features:

• Automatic detection of usage. If you take a break yourself, you will not be interrupted.

• Optional fading out of the screen to make the break more effective.

• Different themes for the break screen and optional tips on ergonomics and similar topics.

• Adjustable work and break period lengths.

• Works with multi-monitor setups.

Get Break Reminder today and take control over your health!

Version 1.11
Review by Austin816

Simple functionality, beautiful implementation - As advertised, this app provides a gentle nudge every so often to get away from the screen and go do something else. The calming images and hints were an unexpected and charming bonus. It notices if you've been away for a while, and only starts its timing for the next break after you start in again -- very appropriate. After using it for a week, I have found it to be a very unintrusive, yet effective, reminder. I do find myself wishing for a "snooze" option, so that when the break comes up I could choose to be reminded again in just a few minutes (let me choose: 2, 5, 10, 15…) so I can keep going a little to reach a good stopping point. Otherwise, just great.
