Too much screen time is a big issue as most Americans are following through with their civic duty and staying home for the lion’s share of each day.
It’s still important to limit your screen time even though it might be tempting to binge-watch your favorite TV shows all day. Pair that with many folks working their jobs remotely on their computers — not to mention handling our smartphones all day — and we have a major problem on our hands.
As more and more of us in the community are trying to get our work done online, it’s important not to clog up your provider by being online for anything other than necessity.
Try reading a hard copy of a book you have — it’s a good way to rest your eyes from damaging blue light that comes from TVs, computers, and our smartphones.
As an antidote to our time spent staring at the computer and TV, do some neck stretches and neck exercises, making sure to keep perfect posture throughout the day.
Play music and listen to podcasts, which will enable you to get other things done, like clean the house, or be more productive for your employer. Listen to audiobooks to break up the monotony.
If you have neck tension or back pain resulting from this new lifestyle, chiropractic treatment can help.
