Whether or not I’m marketing, creating music, having a laugh or watching a movie, I find I spend a majority of my day at my computer. Anybody out there relate? Not surprisingly, the last few years have taken a toll on my eyes so I started poking around to try to do something about it.
First thing I did was start working with as many lights on as I could. Started taking breaks, but not as frequently as I could, started (trying) to get more sleep – I even began to take power naps in the late afternoon. Didn’t seem to help. I finally decided to find an eye doctor near my place and got glasses for computer use.
In addition to all these things, you could also check yourself with a “take-a-break” reminder right on your computer screen. Here’s Giggle Computer’s article on nine programs that can remind you take a break. Save your eyesight!
