What can you do to relieve irritated eyes, neck pain or headaches caused by using digital products?
What can I do? Are there preventative measures?
If you’re using your smartphone or computer for fun, make sure you take a break. Don’t spend too much time surfing the internet, shopping online, playing Pokémon Go or checking out Facebook and YouTube. Not staring at a screen is more difficult at work, because many of us spend most of the day at the computer. But the same rule applies as in your free time: breaks are the best way to give your eyes a rest. We suggest you following the ‘20-20-20 rule‘: look at an object 20 metres away for 20 seconds every 20 minutes. This allows your eyes to relax and prevents additional problems.
