Instructables

Do you remember "Sitting is bad for you" post from Instructables blog?

That told us we shouldn't sit for a long time. We should have a break after a few sitting on a chair.

It's many hours I am sitting on a chair to work with PC, and I know it's not good.

But who can told me "Hey, It's time to break!" ?

Maybe "Health Reminder"!


Health reminder is a simple script that warn with a message box, when you should have a break.

That will help you to have a healthy body and intercept long sitting times!

Step 1: Scripting

Picture of Scripting
  1. Open Notepad
  2. Copy (Ctrl+C) and Paste (Ctrl+V) below code in the editor:

do
wscript.sleep 1800000
x=msgbox ("Hey, It's time to break!" ,64, "Health Reminder")
loop
 


Explanation:

Above code, wrote with VBScript language.
Below, I will explain what we saw there: 

Line1: Start a ring of orders (do)

Line2: Wait for 30 minutes (30 minutes is 1800000 Milliseconds. you can use Windows calculator to convert amounts.)

Line3: After that, show me a message box with "Hey, It's time to break!" content and "Health Reminder" title. 64 is the message box type. For more info about message types, check out here.)

Line4: Repeat this process
