Stay Hydrated Stay Healthy
A small task that is designed to keep you hydrated while you are on your computer. This program will run in background comsuming around 7 MB of ram and negligible amount of CPU usage.
Before running this program in background you must do one change in order for the icon to work properly. Go to the program and open it in any editor. Now change the path of the icon that is given in the program to the path where you pasted the icon (ideally in the folder with with main.py).

This will make the python project a background task which will work even after you close the terminal as well as the IDE. You can see and kill the task with the help of Task Manager where its will be listed as python.
About the Code
This project uses the time module in python to get the information about the current time and store information about when to again run the code after the timeout.
Also just a notification can sometimes just get bypassed by the user when he is using any application that has a higher priority than the notification for which I also added a speaking line using the pyttsx3 module. This will tell you when to drink water along with the desktop nootification.
The last thing to mention is the plyer module used in this project out of which I only imported the notification function. Its is used to display on desktop notification when its time to Drink Water.
