New Tab Stretches
New Tab Stretches is a Chrome extension that reminds you to stretch your body while you're working from home. Whenever you open a new tab in Chrome, New Tab Stretches will show you a new stretch that you could do right in your office or even at your desk.
The current COVID-19 situation has our whole team working from home. Gyms and many public areas are all closed. Since it's hard to get moving, we end up sitting at our desk for hours at a time.
New Tab Stretches is a small way to remind yourself to stay healthy and active throughout the day. Whether you're working intensely on a new project or just spending time browsing the web, the set of illustrations in your new tab can serve as a small reminder to move around. Many of the stretches can be done without having to get up from your computer, and all of the stretches can be done right near your desk.
There's nothing special that you need to do in order to get set up and get started with this extension. Just install it directly from the Chrome extension store, and it will start working on your next new tab. You don't even need to restart your browser.
We worked with a professional illustrator to create original drawings of a diverse set of models who represent the many different types of people who could benefit from stretching throughout the day. We're also trying to improve the number of stretches in the extension as we create more illustrations and learn more stretches!
We hope that this extension can be a way to help in a small way throughout this pandemic. Thanks for sharing it with your friends!
Made with love by the team at Kapwing.
