there is a method for working where you take 5 min brakes every 30 mins called the pomodoro or tomato technique. You could use these for your purpose. For example, there is a pomodoro gnome extnsion in the debian repo that allows you to set a duration for work and duration for pause. It will then after x amount of minutes darken the screen and tell you to take a brake. But you could also use more simpler techniques like a simple stop watch or systemd service that says "brake" every 10 mins or whatever other kind of scripting lnaguage / automation / timing programs there are.

A simple search in Synaptic or Packagesearch turns up xwrits and rsibreak.

Run

Code: Select all
apt show xwrits rsibreak
to see the descriptions. Rsibreak has a lot of KDE dependencies, though.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Flightgear 2018.2.2, 4.19.13 kernel, wine-staging 4.0~rc4, Stellarium 0.18.3, VLC 3.0.5, Midori 7.0
