BREAK REMINDER TOOLS – REVIEW

Do you move regularly as you work? It is not uncommon to sit for hours at a time without even realising it! Our bodies are not designed to stay static or in any one position for long periods of time. For this reason, the use of a free break reminder software can be an ideal tool for reminding you to keep moving.

This week we took some time to use a number of popular break reminder tools.

POSTUREMINDER

Posture Minder is a Google chrome web extension, it reminds you to sit up straight with pop-up notifications at specified time intervals.

This is a great free option when it comes to break reminder tools. Of course, you will need to be a google chrome user to utilise this.

These are just a few of the many options available to you when it comes to break reminder software. Remember to give your eyes regular screen breaks – at least a 20 seconds break for every 20 minutes spent looking at a screen. Also remember to change posture very frequently, move at least every 30 minutes.
