laptop on grass

Working away on our laptops, desktops, tablets and smartphones with our eye red and watery, our minds ready to explode and our chests caved in, resulting in shallow breathing, we know that we are racing towards disaster. But there alway that one more email to be sent or a few more words to be added to that report.

Stop all that and just take a break. Close your eyes, gently clasp your fingers behind your neck and slowly tilt your head up towards the ceiling. Hold for 10 seconds and bring your head and hand back down. Open your eyes and look at something at distance of at least twenty feet for twenty seconds. Do this every twenty minutes.

Yeah…yeah… we all know this as 20-20-20, but how many of us practice it regularly while gazing at screens for long hours. If you could just stand up and take a few steps around the room, just to get the circulation of blood in your legs going; nothing like it.

You will feel so much better at the end of the day and end up with doing much more work.

    1. Thanks Sharya for nice comments!
      I’ve seen so many young professionals burning out because of overwhelming stress and facing computer screens for long hours. This is a great way to destress and remain healthy.
