Marcel's Linux App of the Month: Workrave
Let's face it, we're all working too hard. Aside from the fact that none of this typing and clicking seems to have reduced the amount of time we spend working, it has introduced other problems: lack of exercise, sore eyes, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other repetitive strain injuries. The easy fix to these last problems is to take breaks, walk away from the computer, and maybe stretch a little. The problem seems to be that we suck at taking breaks. Maybe it's time we used to computer to combat the very problems it generates. That's where Workrave comes into play.
