Take A Break – Your Chair Is Killing You!

The folks over at LEARN STUFF.COM want you to get up… walk away from your computer… your desk… and simply… take a break.  Working non-stop without taking a break can increase your chances of weight gain, heart disease and worse. Staring at a computer screen for more than 2 hours per day can cause Computer Vision Syndrome, a real affliction, which causes blurry (not BLURPPY) vision, headaches, dry eyes and can lead to long-term nearsightedness. However, getting up and away from your desk for just 5 minutes can alleviate eye strain and reduce fatigue in addition to making you feel better. The mere act of standing at your desk instead of sitting at it can help you burn up to 2500 calories per week. Not bad for just standing around.

I’m sold.  I’ll be back in a few.  I’m taking my eyes off the screen and going to see if there is any coffee ice cream left in the freezer.
