ADHD: Notifications for how long you've been playing

For those with ADHD, video games can be both great and a detriment since we tend to hyper focus on some things and lose track of time. It would be great if you could have an alert that would notify you how long you've been playing the game or pop up to highlight the time at set intervals.

    I have ADHD and I tend to lose track how much time I have been playing. I'll often forget to shut off my Xbox when I don't use it. I actually want to see a feature where there would be a timer telling you how much time is left before your Xbox One shuts off that shows up on the display screen.
