Note that time does not accumulate for taking breaks while not timing tasks. If you have the break reminder set to remind you to take a break every 25 minutes and you time a task for five minutes and then stop timing it, you will not be reminded to take a break until you time another 20 minutes.

Below you can view an example of a break reminder which appears after a desired amount of time:
