I am up to my eyeballs putting the final touches to the first draft of my book, Focus Like a Laser Beam. I have a chapter that deals with relaxation and stress management (yes, it ties into focus!). As research for the chapter, I found this great new program called, Stretch Break.
I am not an affiliate or anything, so this is just me talking. Stretch Break is a computer program that reminds you to stretch while sitting at your computer.
Ah, very nice, you say. Well that’s not all. It has computer generated people that guide you in doing the stretches. There are 36 stretches in all. You can let the computer pick them for you or you can select stretches if you have preferences or want to work on certain muscle groups.
You can determine the frequency of the reminders, too. I have mine set for every 60 minutes. Each stretch break is very short, just a minute or two. You can determine the number of stretches you do each break.
This is a very cool product and I encourage you to check it out. Companies like Boeing, 3M, and Harvard use it. You can download a full preview version for 10 days (PC or MAC) – free. A single user license is $44. I downloaded the program to my MAC quickly and without any drama (oops, I forgot, drama really only occurs with Windows anyways).
Reduce stress and reduce injuries related to computing. What’s not to love!
Psst! For those of you who have employees who work at a computer screen all day – you need to get this for your people.
