I know many laud Workrave for helping to prevent the adverse health effects of sitting immobile for long periods and repetitive motion injuries. For me, that is just icing on the cake. This unassuming little code has ramped up my productivity about 500.
Lets just say I am prone to laziness not by choice but because my minuscule attention span keeps me hopping from chair to chair. All that changed when my wife, obviously fed up with my lounging around while my dissertation is still pending, diplomatically introduced me to Workrave. That was about 4 weeks ago and my research is already well under way toward completion. With workrave, I am committed to exerting at least 8 hours of effort a day, and I persist with my programmed activities until it tells me to stop working and go find something else to do! Sure, I still get to take 10 minute breaks, stretch a little, raid the cookie shelf, and hydrate. If you are lacking productivity in your life, look no further than this nifty little program. It does more than Covey and all the other productivity gurus put together. I love it!
It is interesting how long people sit at a computer but simply forget the time. Hours can go by, you get stiff, legs and butt hurt, and your eyes are strained.
With the very amazing and mindful program which will do the reminding for you; to take a break, get up, stretch, exercise you eyes to prevent strain and other visuals. You may think at times it is annoying you but it is for your own health so pay heed.
For me it has been just wonderful addition to my daily activities.
It is a Two-Thumbs up apps! Get it, use it, rate it!
This is a very good program that runs unobtrusively in the background, until it is time for you to take a break. Comes with nifty features like enabling or disabling "dismiss" when its time to take a break, freezing the screen input or not, and different settings for short breaks and long breaks. Very important in these days of working continuously online for 8 or more hours!
