Hourly texts that are good for your body and mind

To get started, text "go" to 250-984-0691

Text "freeze" at anytime to stop getting messages

Being an office worker myself, sometimes I can spend hours in one place. Leveraging the handy ErgoBot on twitter, I built ErgoTxt… every hour it sends registered users a text message to tell them to do something.

These messages are generated by ErgoBot and sent straight to you, so you can get reminded to get up and do something.

One by one, touch your thumb and each finger together (keep as straight as possible), first L hand then R. Then backward. Repeat 5x. Water.

Tense? Put tip of tongue on roof of mouth. Inhale thru nose to count of eight. Hold for 4. Exhale for 6 thru mouth. Align your spine.

Do 10 slow kegels. Clasp hands behind head, stretch elbows back. Hold. Repeat. Stretch arms straight back behind you. Relax. Align spine.

Stand in doorway, forearms and palms against frame. Step forward gently. Hold. Do 10x. Drink water. Close eyes 5 min. Look at distant object

Planning? Thinking? Stand up or walk around instead of sitting at keyboard. Rub hands w/vigor till warm before keyboarding. Lower shoulders!

  1. How often will I receive a text?

    You will receive a text hourly from 9am to 5pm your local time. We do some calculations when you first sign up to get your timezone, so you don't have to worry about it.

  2. Where do the messages come from?

    The messages come from the handy ErgoBot twitter feed. I find it easier to get an hourly text to remind me to do something, so that's why I built it.
