Move! may be the solution you need if you are not taking the breaks from your desk that you should take. You need a relentless solution for managing your work breaks. Why? You are putting your health in jeopardy if you don't take your breaks seriously!
Do you know the worst part? All studies backing these claims agree that this is independent of your other activities. You can't out-train your bad behavior at your desk! Move! gets out of your way. But when it is break time, it gets in your face and rescues your health. It can be difficult to comply with the habit of being healthy. This is why you should use this app to automate it: so you can focus on what is important for you now! The nice part about that is that your executive functions will improve immediately if you use your breaks to get your daily movement in. (Verburgh 2013) It is a double-win for you! Move! is super easy to use because it contains the essentials without bloated crap that usually comes along with apps. Here's why sitting is bad for you if you didn't believe us, yet.
