Time Out

Sitting nearly stationary at one's desk for hours at a time can cause a remarkable number of aches and pains. Time Out is a program that will gently (or not so gently) remind users to take periodic breaks. In its default configuration, Time Out suggests 15-second "micro-breaks" every fifteen minutes along with a ten minute "normal break" once per hour. Users may configure any number of breaks with customizable timing. Users may also configure actions to happen before, during, and after breaks. In addition to the built-in actions, additional actions can be added from the Time Out extras page. In the exclusions section, users can configure a list of programs that will not be interrupted by a break. Time Out is available for macOS and can be downloaded either directly from the Time Out website or from the Mac App Store.
