Take a Break - helps you to take a break from your computer

With the help of Take a Break you can do exactly this – you can do so that the app will force you to take a break or simply notify you (pop-up on top of other Windows box, but you can easily close it), all depending on the "effect" that you choose in the settings, Take a Break, and, of course, if you know how to get rid of all these effects (for example, from the rotation options of the screen).

Here is how it works Take a Break: you set the work time, break time and effect. The application performs an action (effect) that you chose to break after the expiry of the working time.

Effects can be turn screen upside down, screen lock or a simple display of a notice.

Other possibilities Take a Break include:

For screensaver or lock screen you need to install gnome-screensaver in your system, so make sure you have installed it, if you want to use these features!

Although available are more or less similar to this application (such as Workrave, which, unfortunately, hasn't been updated since 2013 and looks abandoned), Take a Break simple and lightweight and I would say, quite effective.
