My Rest Break
Whenever you are too focused on your work, it can be easy to lose track of time and find yourself forgetting to take periodic breaks. This can have unpleasant ill effects and can lead to a deterioration of your health.
My Rest Break is a simple application that can help you avoid these side effects, by enabling you to schedule regular breaks and reminding you when they are due. It displays a pop-up window that cannot be closed until the predefined rest period has passed.
Customize break length and interval
The application allows you to specify how often it should remind you to stop your current task and spend some time performing other activities.
You can also set up a custom break length, indicating how long the application should display the reminder for.
However, while rest length is updated immediately after you modify the parameter, you need to restart the application for it to update the break interval.
Displays break parameters in the main window
After you have set up your personalized break timer, the application displays the current settings, allowing you to see when the next rest period is due, as well as the last time you have taken a break.
However, not all of this information seems to be updated immediately after you modify the application's settings, requiring you to exit and restart the program to ensure the displayed data is accurate.
Additionally, if you shut down the application, it does not inform you when the last break was taken after restart.
Easy-to-use and unobtrusive interface
The application is very intuitive, making it accessible even for inexperienced users. It can be minimized to the system tray, allowing you to focus on other tasks while the timer runs in the background.
Overall, My Rest Break is a useful tool that can help you reduce the change of suffering ill effects from spending too much time on your computer, by reminding you to take periodic breaks.
