If you are a heavy computer user who can spend hours in front of the screen without taking a break then it’s high time you change this habit. It might affect your eyes/wrists negatively and could also cause RSI (Repetitive strain injury).

Big Stretch Reminder is a nice tool which can prompt you to take regular breaks from work by popping up a notification at specified time intervals. As the name of the tool suggests, it reminds you to get up and stretch.
