7 Tips on How to Relax Your Eyes at the Computer

Thank goodness our modern day computer screens (LCD, LED types) are way better and definitely easier on the eyes than the old big green CRT monitors that could literally burn your eyes. Well, at least that was what it felt like back then. However, you can still accumulate unnecessary eye strains if you’re not mindful of how you’re using your eyes while at the computer.

Many of us spend hours daily on the computer and our eyes are glued to them, causing undue stress plus adding tension to our bodies, especially the neck, shoulders and back. We pick up unhealthy bodily habits and patterns that over time, become normal to us. And yet we wonder why our eyesights are getting worse and why we get headaches etc.
