It is very easy to fall into bad habits when using a computer for hours on end. You care about what you are doing, so can sometimes push yourself too far, or over-strain yourself. The human body isnt built to sit in one position for endless hours, gripping a mouse or typing on the keyboard. Dejal TimeOut is here to help. It will gently remind you to take a break on a regular basis.
TimeOut comes with two kinds of breaks: a Normal break, typically for 10 minutes every hour, so you can move about and relax, plus a Micro break: a very brief pause of typically 15 seconds every 15 minutes, so you can remember not to tense up too much for long periods. You can change, disable or remove either kind of break if desired, and add new kinds of breaks, e.g. fixed lunch or afternoon breaks.
You can configure how long each kind of break lasts, and how long between breaks, and the breaks can be set to count backwards when you take a natural break, e.g. when you go away from your computer.
