Do you spend too much time on the computer? It happens to all of us. We sit without moving much for long hours in front of a screen and forget to take a break, which can hurt our eyes, shoulders, backs and wrists.
Scirocco Take a Break is a free app that runs in the background and reminds you to take breaks. It works as a timer. Set how much time you want to work and the length of the break you want to give yourself and let the app run by itself in the background.
When it is time to take a break, the app will play a sound and display a dialog message. It can also be configured to blink the tray icon instead of displaying a dialog.
In addition, the app can be configured to automatically lock your screen or display your screensaver when the break starts.
It also provides statistics about how much time you’ve been working.
Overall, this is a very simple app that can help prevent various health issues arising from prolonged computer use. In addition, this app can also help with productivity and procrastination.
