This is my Adaptation of another flow: https://llamalab.com/automate/community/flows/16378.
I've been meaning to do this but I didn't know how to and hadn't got the time yet to figure it out but he had it so I could just change what I needed and want to share this flow. Thank you so much for that, Pablo Marín!

It works as a reminder every x-th minute of the hour. As I put it, it will vibrate once very shortly. You can obviously put in what you need. The original flow announced the current time.

At the beginning it will ask at what interval to remind you. There will be a notification with a play/pause button, as well as another to change the interval. The value should be stored atomically (but it didn't work for me, dunno why, in another flow I did the same and it works... Any suggestions?) so you don't have to configure it every time.

The alert is set to exact mode which will use more battery, but it also means the alert will not be delayed by 0 to 3 min. This can be easily changed to inexact mode (block 16).

Further I added an automatic pause during my "siesta" time and at night, when you obviously don't want to be "reminded". In blocks 65 and 66 you can configure the time when this pause should start. It will automatically begin again once an alarm goes off. Unfortunately I haven't found a way yet to change the notification from pause to start when in siesta/night mode... It still works, but it will say pause even though it should say start.

Suggestions welcome!
