make things easier on
improve screen habits in the
blink of an eye
From the moment we wake up to the moment we switch off the bedside lamp, our eyes are open for business. And a whole lot of that time is spent on screens.
Your eyes could use a break, so let's explore ways you can still get things done while giving your eyes a rest.
Take blink breaks
Sometimes simply shutting your eyes for a bit can help re-moisturize them. So go ahead—give your eyes a flutter! Try a set of blink reps and see how your eyes thank you.
An easy way to remember to take breaks from screens is the 20/20/20 rule. Every 20 minutes, take 20 seconds to look at something 20 feet away—may we suggest the view out your window, a pretty picture on the wall, or that cutie a few cubicles down?
Meditate and appreciate
You can get closer to inner peace for yourself and your eyes by meditating during the day. Download some meditation apps, so your screen BFF doesn't feel left out, and try a 5- or 10-minute guided meditation.
Practice good posture
Don't slouch! Sitting up straight and making sure you're at least 25 inches away from your screen and taking blink breaks will help your eyes out.
Level up your lighting
Make sure to set the mood with lighting that's good for your eyes. Not too dim so your computer screen glows in the dark, but not too bright that you're squinting.
