Repetitive Strain Injury prevention tool
  16 reviews

Workrave is a program that assists in the recovery and prevention of Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI). The program frequently alerts you to take micro-pauses, rest breaks and restricts you to your daily limit.

It includes a system tray applet that works with GNOME and KDE and has network capabilities to monitor your activity even if switching back and forth between different computers is part of your job.

Workrave offers many more configuration options than other similar tools.

This just to be my favourite app to get me to take breaks and work more productively, but it depends on the XFCE panel now so you can't install it on Mint Cinnamon or MATE anymore.

Every day it starts, but it is so violent that I prefer to kill it everyday. People are not children. Say this too our Macron too. So don't block my work ok ? or I uninstall it. I chat on social media and it may be a problem and may harm if I cannot edit rapidly.

I'm not just saying this app is amazing! I use it home and reminds me to take breaks! It actually makes me stand up and have some screen off time... I'm impressed how well it works... This is a must have app. Give it a try you will see it will make a difference.
