Computer workers . . . this blog’s for you. Your health will be merrier when you consider the advise posted here by Cheyene Rivers, owner of ErgoWellness, Missoula’s resource for office ergonomics.
Support your body with proper nutrition and drink plenty of water. We should all be drinking half of our body weight in water per day. If we have water by our side while computing, this will help support us in getting up to get more water and going to the bathroom! Every break, no matter what it is, is a support to our well-being 🙂
During the time that I was injured by repetitive strain injury, I was under factors of fatigue, pressures from clients, and being stagnant at the computer as well as repeating mouse clicking many times during the day. In addition, I was undernourished because I did not take the time for a good lunch and sufficient meals throughout the day. When I became injured, the body started drawing on the reserves of my muscles and tissues because I had not supported my body enough nutritionally. This led to further injury. Make time to eat well in a relaxed environment for proper digestion. This information is supported by Real Cooking, Holly Greenwood, Missoula Montana.
