Many people use the computer for work, spending at the monitor up to 8 hours daily. The number of owners of personal computers or laptops using such equipment in their spare time from work has increased many times in recent years. However, to maintain health in the face of the dominance of computer technology is quite realistic.
First of all, when working at a computer, users are afraid for their eyesight. Indeed, during a long and monotonous work at the computer, the eyes experience a lot of stress. Especially harmful for sight is a long reading of electronic books, as a person keen on an interesting story almost stops blinking, so that the mucous membrane of the eyes gets used.
First of all, when working at a computer, users are afraid for their eyesight. Indeed, during a long and monotonous work at the computer, the eyes experience a lot of stress. Long reading of information from the computer screen is especially harmful for vision.
It is necessary to adjust the position of the monitor so that the sun’s rays or light from artificial sources do not get on the screen. Of course, we do not forget about gymnastics for tired eyes and frequent short breaks. If these conditions are met, your vision will not be affected.
Now notice how you hold the mouse in your hand. Most likely, at the same time you squeeze the hand much more than necessary. What for? The computer mouse will not break, but the tension of the muscles of the hands will remind you of itself later. The same happens if you strongly knock on the computer keyboard. You again unnecessarily strain your hands. If you do not want to get a disease called “tunnel syndrome” – urgently take action and stop torturing your technique. In addition to optimizing the tension of the hands, it is useful to engage in special gymnastics to relieve tension from them.
Now let’s talk about a tired back. Prolonged exposure to a curved posture is very harmful to health. All the departments of the spine suffer from disorders of posture, so special attention should be paid to this issue. The main thing – often change the position of the body when working at the computer. Move your legs from side to side, slightly change the angle of the back, turn your head from right to left and back: in general, do everything not to stay in a fixed position for a long time.
Do not forget about daily gymnastics, fitness or at least usual exercises. Work on the computer does not require large physical costs, so often alternate it with physical labor or sports exercises. A walk along the street is generally a wonderful opportunity not only to give a load to your muscles, but also to provide the opportunity to rest your eyes.
