The Count.It Slack app introduced the concept of the "workbreak." It's important to take moments during the work day to do something to take care of our body. This could be a short "stretch break," a quick push-up break, or a moment to meditate or hydrate. The Count.It Slack app gives people a way to set daily workbreak goals, and also rewards them for taking their breaks — every workbreak logged on Count.It is worth five (5) Count.It points!

Even better, anyone can now "challenge" their friends and co-workers to take workbreaks with them! Here's how it works...

To set a personal workbreak goal:

/countit goal

To log activity:

/countit [AMOUNT] [ACTIVITY]

Users can log a workbreak directly using a /countit command with activity indicated, or by just typing /countit alone to get the workbreak logging popup form. As in:

/countit 25 pushups

/countit 8 oz hydration


/countit [RETURN]

  • PRO TIP: The syntax of workbreak commands is flexible. For example, all of the following will work:


/countit 8 oz hydration

/countit 12 oz water

/countit 4 ounces water


/countit push ups

/countit pushup

To invite an @friend or #channel to do a workbreak with you:

countit @friend [AMOUNT] [ACTIVITY}


/countit @oliver 10 pushups

/countit @here 10 pushups

To delete a workbreak goal you have set, and turn off the CountItBot reminders:

  • Send /countit goal

  • On the goal creation form that pops up, click the Delete button.

Have fun, and don't forget to take a break!
