      Divide your work into slots of 20-30 minutes each. Take a 5-minute break in between, and do some physical work that involves moving around. Believe me, it has in fact added to my productivity.

    Pay attention on installing this so called free application!
    Cos' if you do not pay attention you'll end up with some other bloatware installed along side with the so called free application: "Make Babylon Search My homepage", "Install Babylon Toolbar", Make Babylon my default Search".
    Since a free application has a commercial counterpart the free one SHOULD NOT be accompanied by some other bloatwares whatsoever!

    BreakTaker is pretty cool but I was still too stubborn to take it's advice. I'm the workaholic type who rather try to finish the task at hand then take the well deserved break.

      It's strongly recommended to take a short break for a few min every hour or so. Sitting for a long time without taking breaks can lead to spine problems
