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.

Works great. A must have. Just use it. Installing from their webside is not recommended.

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.

A 10 minute break every 50 minutes keeps my mind clear and focussed; technically I spent less minutes working but I am doing so much more work than I'd have otherwise! ... I also like how it tells me to pretend that I'm an airplane, and to stare into darkness!

I like that it keeps track of the hours that I spent infront of my computer and reminds me of the daily limit!
