If you spend all day in front of a monitor, then you need to make sure you take breaks (and not just to go and browse the fridge). A very interesting post by Mike Gunderloy at Web Worker Daily talks about various pieces of software you can use on your computer which will encourage you to take a break and flex your muscles. My favourite is Break Reminder which keeps a weather eye on your onscreen activity and if you're spending too much time at the keyboard blacks out your screen and freezes your mouse for five minutes to encourage you to get moving. More suggestions are made in the comments section so read on after the main article finishes.
