If you are like the typical computer user, at the end of the day you feel like a wreck: your back hurts, your eyes are red and tired, and your neck is stiff. The long hours of work with computers and the lack of adequate rest can often lead to health troubles like back pain, eye strain, and even Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI).
WorkPause in action But it doesn’t have to be like this. The best cure is prevention, and we all know what we have to do: make regular breaks and use them to take the eyes off the screen, do some stretches or a short walk around the office. But in reality, deeply immersed in your work, you often forget to rest. You need a reminder – like WorkPause.
