Take regular breaks from your computer work in order to ensure you will not suffer from Repetitive Strain Injuries, thanks to this handy tool
When working on a complex project, you might get so caught up in your work that you forget to take a break, stretch for a few minutes or simply drink a cup of water.
PC WorkBreak is one of the applications that remind you when it is time to take a break so as to increase your long-term productivity.
Minimalistic, yet intuitive GUI
The utility comes with a simplistic graphic user interface (GUI), which makes it easy for everyone to identify and understand its functions.
You need to start by creating a list with the breaks you want to take, as well as define some time intervals when no breaks are required, then set PC WorkBreak to run at Windows startup.
Set up frequent breaks, depending on your needs
When it comes to setting up a new break, you need to assign it a brief title that can also serve as a motivational phrase – this way you can make sure that you are not tempted to ignore the break reminder.
You can choose the break duration (in seconds) and its frequency or fixed time, along with a relevant graphic file (GIF, JPEG, BMP, WMF, PNG or ICO).
Play sounds during the scheduled breaks and choose ‘no break’ days
A nifty function is enjoying your preferred audio tracks in the background, while taking the scheduled breaks since this can help you relax to the fullest and recharge your batteries.
As previously mentioned, you can define some time intervals when no breaks are required, as well as select the so-called ‘No Break Days’. This can come in handy if you plan to set PC WorkBreak to run at startup and do not want it to remind you to take a break when watching a movie or playing a game on weekends.
All in all, PC WorkBreak can be of great use to workaholics who rarely remember to take a break. The app also keeps track of all the breaks you dismissed or interrupted to get back to work, so you can use the statistics as an incentive to relax more even if you are working on an important project.
