Download Stretchly for Windows - Break time reminder application that automatically reminds you to take breaks while you are working on your computer
Stretchly is an open-source tool which displays regular "take a break" reminders when you’re working on your PC, Linux system or Mac. There are plenty of similar tools around, but stretchly has some unusual touches which help it stand out from the crowd. The program immediately minimizes to your system tray and leaves you to work as usual. No bulky scheduling or setup dialog here.
After 10 minutes (by default) an overlay appears in the center of your screen, with an idea for a 20-second "microbreak". This might be a suggestion to focus your eyes on something distant, stand up and stretch your arms, any brief activity that takes your eyes off the screen.
This is a smart idea because it’s not only good health advice, but is for such a short period time that you’ll be able to do it, almost no matter how busy you are. And if you can’t, well, there’s a "skip" button on the default screen which allows you to carry on as normal.
These timings can be reconfigured from a Settings dialog. You’re able to set the length of breaks and microbreaks, how frequently they should happen, whether you’re forced to have them or they can be skipped, and whether they’re enabled at all (you could have breaks only and ignore microbreaks, for instance).
