Despite the fact that working on the computer might sound like the most relaxing job in the world, the sheer number of users visiting the hospitals each year prove the contrary. Irrespective of the fact that you are spending 7 or 8 hours sitting in front of the PC for leisure or work, you should not neglect your health and take breaks often.
Activity Reminder is a lightweight piece of software designed to analyze user computer activity patterns and reminds them to take a break from time to time.
After a quick setup, you are welcomed by a small, yet intuitive and colorful main window that displays the options available. Even though the functions do not include a tooltip, the icons are representative for their role and should not cause any challenges.
The application can also be accessed from the System Tray and enables you to create, view and set timers for the tasks, events and appointments you plan to complete in the current day. The tool also includes an Achievement and Awards window that can help keep you motivated, particularly if you enjoy playing mini games.
The main function of the program is to analyze the user activity at the computer on regular intervals, statistics that are neatly displayed in a bar graph. You can access activity statistics on a daily, weekly, monthly or yearly basis as well as during specific dates.
In addition to monitoring, the application enables you to create tasks and reminders, an option that can help you figure out the activities that take the most of your time. Lastly, the utility permits you to set alerts and reminders for all sorts of tasks or when you consider it would be a good moment to take a break.
If you started experiencing back pains, eye problems and have a bad posture, then perhaps it is time to reevaluate the time you are spending sitting down. Activity Reminder allows you to analyze and optimize these intervals and reminds you of the importance to take a break.
