... where visionaries, game changers, and challengers discuss business models
Many solopreneurs are deskbound these days or working from a laptop in some coffee shop. Particularly when we are focused on getting certain tasks done, we can stay that way for hours on end. The result? We get stiff, out of shape, develop poor posture and our health ultimately suffers. My new favourite tool to combat it is Stretchclock.
I found Stretchclock when I was looking for something that would remind me to take a break. I tried the various timers on my computer and a few other apps offered out there but this little gem fits me perfectly! Essentially it is a reminder clock that sits in the background and goes off every 30, 40, etc. minutes (you set the time). It either reminds you to get up and do a stretch or exercise; or it opens up a window where some guy in a bad suit is doing a stretch on a lake or beach somewhere. It can be pretty funny as well. All the stretches/exercises are one minute or less and you can simply click them off or do what I do – stop whatever I’m doing and just do the stretch/exercise.
Why do I love it so much? Here’s my highlights:
That’s it. That’s my solopreneur health tip of the day :-). Try out stretchclock if you feel like living a little better and a little longer and if you have a moment, tell me what you do to keep from going crazy in the chair!
