In times of COVID-19 many of us are (forced to) working from home, most probably using a laptop. Laboring for hours over a tilted display and fixed keyboard forces our body to pay a hefty price: eye strain, myopia, carpal tunnel syndrome, repetitive strain injury (RSI) such as back ache and neck pain are only some of the symptoms that verify our negligence to caring for our body while working.
Nevertheless, we need not cross the Rubicon to take action. This article takes you through the process of building a recovery and preventive work routine to help you avoid the computer-related RSI symptoms. This routine combines a set of active and passive ergonomic practices with a caring mentality to sensitize you about your body health while working.
