This is a game-changer. Too often, I found my calendar stacking up with back-to-back calls. This little tool has absolutely improved my day-to-day productivity and happiness during work. I get the breaks I need to refresh, reset, and stretch, and I don't have to think about carving out that time because BreakBot does it for me. 100% recommend this tool!

This app saves me from daily burnout! I was letting my calendar fill up with meetings and time blocks without giving myself time to recharge (or even take a bathroom break). And when I kept telling myself I would schedule "me-time", I'd always forget. But this plug-in helped me to take those well-need breaks each day. Without me having to even think about it. Now, I feel more in control of my days, full of energy, and mentally recharged (no matter how busy my schedule is). Thanks BreakBot!

Whenever I change other events or modify the length of the break events, it does not remove/modify existing break events - it creates new ones...

Let's face it - we've all had those days where our calendars get booked all day without time to take a break, eat lunch, refill our water bottle or go to the bathroom. BreakBot solves this problem by adding breaks so "I didn't have time for lunch" never becomes a problem again :)

Great app. I didn't realize how long I'd be working myself without a break. My only complaint is that it doesn't identify when a calendar event is a lunch break, so it will think it's a meeting and book a break before/after it. Edit: Another issue I'm finding is that it will sometimes place breaks in places that don't work for me so if I try to move the calendar break hold, it does that but then creates a new break event in the original time that doesn't work for me.

I love BreakBot! ☕️ It is so necessary for our mental health and productivity to take a step back to recharge once or twice during the day. It's easy to get wrapped up in daily activities, and it's great to have a reminder to step away from my computer and get a glass of water, grab a little snack, or step outside for some fresh air! I also love how it schedules my breaks right in my calendar like a little meeting with me- no more getting all booked up for the day with no leftover room for breaktime. This app is genius👍

What a great little helper for preventing meeting and workload burnout. Such an efficient little thing. My calendar fills up and there is bot ensuring I get a much needed 15-minute break at periodic times throughout the day. I do wish it could be configured to send a notification of a break coming up. Right now it blocks off my time but since I don't get notifications, I often miss these breaks. Hope those are coming.

I'm frequently in back-to-back meetings and this has been a nice gentle reminder to let my mind settle between big blocks of calls. Love it!

This plug-in really has really helped me to take a step back from the computer when I need it to catch my breath. Lots of meetings happening one after another these days, and it's SO easy to forget to pause and let yourself have a coffee break or step outside for a minute. 100% recommend!

This has been such a lifesaver for me. I wasn't great about adding in breaks to my schedule. And I would end the day having got out of my chair only a few times. This definitely allows me to be more intentional about my work-life balance!
