Rest Relax Reminder Application


Rest Relax Reminder Icon Rest Relax Reminder is a FREE Windows alarm application that you can use to time breaks from the computer screen (or any device or activity). This program can be set to detect when you are working, and will adjust itsself accordingly. This will ensure that the times that Rest Relax Reminder suggests you take a break are when you really need one.

And, you can set the Rest Relax Reminder application to show a screen encouraging you to take a break, and show a helpful quote and a random image (from your own picture library). The reminder screen can be forced too, so you cannot keep working until your rest time is over.

The Relax Relax Reminder application will be made Open Source once it is complete and fully tested. Until then, please contact me via the comments below if you would like a copy of the code.
