This depends on your OS. If its Linux/MacOs then cron might be the best 
If its Windows you can use scheduled tasks to do it, or the at command.

Or youcould write a python script that runs in the background
(a service or daemon) and launces a thread at periodic intrevals.

But I'd go with cron/at as the simplest solution.
