Rest can remind you to take a short break from being at your computer. We all know it is sensible to take breaks while using a computer for extended periods of time, in order to prevent eyestrain, stiff neck, headaches, back aches, and RSI. Sometimes you forget to rest because you are immersed in your work. Simply specify the amount of time you want to work between breaks, the length of the breaks, and how you want to be notified when a break is due. The application resides in the status area of your Mac menu bar, out of the way. It displays an icon and the current mode (Work or Break) along with a countdown of the minutes left. The application will remind you to take a break at the specified intervals by a popup message and/or sound (also in Notification Center if your OS supports it).
