Don’t cry over CRI. Rest your feet & play by rules

If you’re using a computer at home, here is how you can avoid the agonising and sometimes immobilising condition called computer related injury:

Laptops are best avoided for long-time use. But if you have to have one, keep an external keyboard at your desk. It doesn’t cost much, can be easily attached to the laptop and almost converts it to a desktop.

Don’t dangle your feet. Rest them comfortably on the floor or a footrest. Buy a foot machine (an electronically operated angled foot rest that costs around Rs 8,000) if you can afford one. It encourages blood circulation in the feet. (Via The Telegraph)
