Break time is an app that reminds you to stand up every chosen amount of time.

Why?

Because sitting too much is bad for your health. The video below explains why.

Usage

Choose the interval time you want to be reminded in and the way you want to be reminded.

If you choose "Sound", the sound below will notify you that it's time for a break.

"Notification" option will notify you to stand up. Test it by clicking the button below.

All other alternatives will link to the URL that belongs to it, through a notification. By clicking on the notification you'll open your chosen website in a new tab. You can see which URL belongs to what down below.

URLs that belong to the different alternatives
"Music"   "Today's top 100" music station from jango.com
"Workouts"   from fitnessblender.com
"Exercises"   from fitness.com
"Eye exercises"   exercises4eyes.com
"Dance"   justdancenow.com
"Yoga"   doyogawithme.com

"Random" will pick a random alternative out of the suggested URLs. You can also check more than one alternative and get multiple tabs at the same time. And finally. If you want to open up some other pages, you can choose "Custom URL" and type in the address of the page. If you want to get multiple pages up at the same time, just separate URLs with a comma.

Tips

Sometimes you just forget to launch the app in the first place. You can solve the problem by setting your browser to autostart when the computer starts and setting the address of this page as the start page in your browser. The playlist below shows you how to do that. The first video shows how to enable autostart for Windows 10 users. The second half of the first video shows how to set the startup page in different browsers. That applies to all users no matter what operative system you're using. If the browser you're using is not listed in the video, the process should be similar for other browsers. The second video in the playlist shows how to enable autostart on mac OS X Yosemite.

Break Time is also available for android phones at google play store or amazon app store
