I can’t remember a time that I didn’t work on a computer or used a computer aided device. Since I started my schooling and career in the late 1990s, digital technology, smart devices, and electronics have been a key factor in my occupational success.
Whether working in-house for numerous industries or telecommuting from my home office for my own business, making a conscience effort to maintain good habits has been, and remains a focus for my computer operating practice.
Here is a list of my easy go-to computer user suggestions that I try to follow each day to ensure that my back, hips, eyes, and now children, are staying safe.
Don’t forget to:
Blink your eyes often
Change your environment or room
Sit up straight with your feet flat on the floor and use a pull-out keyboard tray
Stand at your desk a few times throughout the day
Wear blue light glasses
Get up and stretch often
Remember, change doesn’t happen overnight. If you need a little bit of help following the above tips, program your smart devices to remind you! Set timers, reminders, and develop schedules to help be successful.
