Research shows that sitting for prolonged periods of time can have a very negative impact on your health. Aside from proper ergonomics regular breaks are essential if you want to avoid RSI (repetitive strain injury). This is where Get Moving comes into play. Get Moving will motivate you to take regular breaks. You simply start the timer and get moving when you hear the sound. Just a five minute break can do a big difference.
To start the inactivity timer simply click start, Get Moving takes care of the rest. When the timer hits zero you will get a reminder to take a break. This is the time to hit the treadmill, go for a walk around the office or at the very least take some time to stretch your muscles. Having too much fun? The countdown clock will let you know when you should resume your work.
To avoid prolonged periods of inactivity you can try alternating between sitting and standing. This is where the standing timer comes in handy. If you are new to the concept of standing while working start by setting a goal of just a few minutes and then gradually increase the amount of time. Get Moving will let you know how awesome you are.
To motivate you even further you will also be able to compare your inactivity and standing data over the last 7 days to see how you have improved throughout the week.
Default alert chime or your own tune, you choose. If you select your favorite song from your own music library you might even be motivated to start dancing during your next break.
