I have been searching pretty dilligently for Break Reminder Software. I like to read reviews and other users’ experiences on things as part of my research before I buy something. Looking for reviews on Break Reminder software has been difficult. Either the tool has too few reviews or no one has ever heard of it!
So I decided to set out on my own and pick one based on my needs and what I think would work. It was also important that I was able to try the software before buying it, or that it was a free application alltogether. I was pleasantly surprised to find what I was looking for. You can read my review here for a complete analysis.
One thing I need to mention is that the application I ended up downloading was for Macintosh OS. I do own a Windows computer but I have no need for a Break Reminder application for it. However I’m pretty pleased with the one I chose that I may just research one for Windows as well.
For those that don’t know what a Break Reminder application is…it is simply a tool that is used to remind you to take breaks at certain intervals when you are working for long periods of time. No matter how you remind yourself to take a break, the important thing is to TAKE THAT BREAK!! It is detrimental to one’s health to contantly be on the computer for hours on end. It strains your eyes, promotes inactivity, and can cause muscle strain in your back, shoulders, neck, and even legs.
Before I installed the application on my computer I was using my cell phone and calendar to schedule my breaks. I like to take at least 5-10 minutes every hour. Scheduling it became a hassle and frustrating, plus it was too easy to snooze or ignore. With the application I chose it is much simpler and more difficult to ignore.
I want to point out that I am not affiliated in any way with the product I chose, nor will I get compensated for giving a positive review. I just want to share something with other writers, internet marketers, and anyone else who spend their time on the computer for hours on end and needs an effective tool to remind them to stay healthy by giving your eyes and body a break.
