Working hard is a good thing, but the same cannot be said about ignoring your health while working hard. We all love to work hard, but we all should keep our health in focus when at work. This is specially true for the people who work in front of their computers all day. Their work life is almost sedentary as they sit on a chair staring at the computer screen all day long. This can give serious health issues related to bones, muscles, eyes, and more.
One easy way to prevent any adverse effects of working in front of a computer everyday is by taking regular breaks. All you have to do is get up from your chair and take a walk. You can also do jumping jacks if you want to, but just walking around for 10 minutes after every 50 minutes of work is good enough.
The problem is when we are working, we are so much focused on the projects at hand that we forget to take regular breaks. This is when a software Health Break Reminder can be very useful. This software is designed for Windows computers and can display regular reminders on your screen every few minutes.
In the settings of the Health Break Reminder, we can set the work time period, idle time period, display the idle time, display notifications in the system tray, change the alert text, change the sound that is played at the alerts, and more. It sets the work time to 20 minutes and idle time to 3 minutes. If no input events from your keyboard or mouse are detected then it resets the work time automatically assuming that you have been taking a break already.
Health Break Reminder is not a free software but offers free to try version that displays a nag each time you launch it. In our tests we found that it is indeed very useful but the work time period should be adjusted to be a big longer.
