As technology becomes a key component in most industries, many of us spend a great deal of our day in front of a computer screen. Without breaks, we can experience a variety of mental and physical health effects. Regular breaks can help to relieve pain due from sitting too long and increase productivity and alertness. We need those kind of breaks at home, too.Unfortunately, it’s not always a simple task to practice such self-discipline. That email inbox is growing by the minute and those documents aren’t going to file themselves. Sometimes, all that is needed is a gentle push to remind us to take a moment to breathe, stand up, stretch, or simply give our eyes a break.Unless you work in a soundproof office, a typical kitchen timer may not be suitable for the workplace environment, particularly if it goes off every 20 minutes. Smartphone timers aren’t much better. If you’re home, you’ve got all the other distractions of home life to keep you off your timing game. Luckily, there are a variety of break reminder solutions available right on your desktop.
