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.

Refuse to type-chat. Insist on audio or video. Rapid typing is damaging. Oh, your fingers are awesome! Spread them wide. Hold. Do 10x slowly

Find bone at base of thumb, palm side. Massage that point. Hand problems can start at your neck. Shoulders back! Slow circles with head.

Time to stand in the doorway again. Palms and arms against frame. Gently step forward to stretch. Do 5 times slowly. Close eyes. Walk a bit.

Raise your arms to the ceiling 10x. Fingers sore? Take a break. Massage them. Cheer up or encourage a friend with a call or email.

Laughing is healthy. LOL or make someone else laugh! Stand in doorway, arms up, palms against frame; gently step forward a few times.

  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.
