Do you sit at your desk for hours on end, typing (or mousing) away at your Mac? You know that's not good for you, right? Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) is a real problem, and if you make your living blogging, coding, or otherwise pounding away, you don't need to find yourself out-of-action because you didn't take enough breaks while you were working. I suppose if you were disciplined enough—or un-focused enough—you could avoid this, but sometimes it's helpful to have a little assistance.

AntiRSI is an app that can help you remember to take breaks when you should. You can set intervals for pauses—short rests of a few seconds—and for real breaks—less frequent, but several minutes in length. It's also smart enough to recognize when you've taken a bit of a break on your own, and won't force you to stop too many times.

A free download, AntiRSI is distributed as a Universal Binary, meaning it's equally at home on your PowerPC or x86-flavored Mac. It requires OS X version 10.4 or later.
