Have you ever spent several hours at your computer? I refer to extended periods of time. Have you skipped lunch? Have you eaten at your desk? How productive are you if you never take a break? Have you ever felt exhausted after a day of work?
The majority of individuals spend between eight and ten hours per day working on their computers. That’s forty to fifty hours per week. People are working ever harder. They believe they are productive by working continuously throughout the day. Some individuals believe they are more productive. However, our bodies are built for movement. Your muscles become rigid due to the extensive computer use. Your body begins to tire. Your productivity consequently begins to decline.
