Symptoms of stress and fatigue from working at a computer can be avoided with proper posture, good work habits and ensuring the equipment you work on is adjusted correctly. To maximize your personal comfort: Use a lighter touch on the keyboard to reduce shock to your wrists. Use a document holder if you often type material from other sources. Increase your lighting. Periodically focus your eyes on an object at least 20 feet away. Take a minute every so often to stretch and vary your routine. Change your posture throughout the day. You should perform 15 minutes of non-keying activity for every two hours of keying. Do not cradle the telephone between your shoulder and neck while keying. I hope these tips improve your computer use. Thanks for reading!!
