Don’t stare at the screen
Several studies have shown that most people who spend their time staring at the computer screen three hours a day are more likely to develop a temporary abnormality called Computer Vision Syndrome. In other words, they may develop problems like eye fatigue, dry eyes or blurred vision. To remedy this, practice the technique of 20-20-20: every 20 minutes, turn your eyes away from the screen and look at an object at 20 feet distant from you, for at least 20 seconds.
Stop bad habits
Poor diet or smoking are habits that can seriously affect the functioning of the body. In addition, it is also not advisable to use your smartphone or computer in the dark. This screen emits blue light that allows you to clearly see your screen, but also damages your retina.
Furthermore, a study by Swedish researchers from Uppsala University and US researchers from Wayne University has proven that cell phones emit radiation and delay sleep that can lead to mood disorders. It is therefore advisable not to use the phone before going to bed, not to mention that we should not deprive ourselves of sleep to allow the eyes to rest.
