Eye strain – it sucks. When you stare at a computer or your phone (or both) all day, you damage your ability to focus, give yourself headaches, eye twitching, neck and shoulder pain, and a lot of other things that point to it being a bad idea. Fortunately, there are things you can do besides abandoning your electronics, and we love the 20-20-20 rule:
Look away every 20 minutes, gazing at an objects least 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds.
Try these as well:
- Blink More.
- Turn down the brightness.
- Reduce the color temperature.
- Take real breaks from looking at screens at all.
- Increase the text size.
- Use computer glasses.
Take care of your eyes, you only get 2.
