You can look on snippet of my ~/.Xsession file:

it updates date&time every second, but load and disk&cpu temperature
only each 15 seconds.
Also there is outer BIG loop so I am able to "reload" dwm (via dwm
quit). To end the session I can use c-a-backspace (-> Xserver quits and
all the program it was running too).
