"Stay sane with this Rest Reminder work logger"
Break is a Windows software that aims to help users work more efficiently by recording their work times and reminding them to take a break when they have been working for a set amount of time. The software is designed to help users avoid the negative effects of prolonged sitting and computer use, such as eye strain, headaches, and back pain, by encouraging them to take regular breaks and stretch their legs.
One of the standout features of Break is its ability to track and record work times for a virtually unlimited number of different categories. Users can create as many work types as they need, with each type having its own maximum time cap and notes section. The software also records data for the last seven days, as well as an overall total, average, and percentage, providing users with detailed insights into their work habits. This enables users to know how long they are on their computer and what they do most while they're on it.
The software also has a built-in reminder function that can be set to remind users to take a break every 5 to 120 minutes. The reminder can be configured to use a window and any common sound file to get up and go for a walk, have a coffee, go home, or go to bed. For those who need that extra push to stop working, Break can also blank the screen as well.
In addition, Break also supports other features such as text logging, target time notification (with automatic calculation as well as manual), random alert sound, random alert text, auto reset, file alerts, micro breaks, file logging, and auto boot. This gives users a wide range of options to customize the software to their specific needs.
Another great feature of Break is its ability to track the time you are not working and the time you are away from the computer, in addition to time spent working. This allows users to get a complete picture of their work habits and make informed decisions about how to improve their work-life balance.
The software also has an "Away" mode which can be temporarily disabled with the "At Meeting" function, allowing users to track their work time even when they are away from their computer.
Break's user interface is well-designed and intuitive, making it easy to use and navigate. The main window can be set to be on-top of other windows and transparent as well, and the software supports multi-user setups. Overall, Break is a powerful and well-designed software that provides users with the tools and features they need to work more efficiently and take care of their physical and mental health.
