Let’s face it, we are staring at one kind of screen or another most hours of the day. You probably know this isn’t a really healthy way to live, but can you do anything about it?
Yes, you can. The Unplug Collaborative partnering with Biotrue Hydration Boost Eye Drops from Bausch + Lomb wants you to join the 14th Annual Global Day of Unplugging movement on March 3-4th from sundown to sundown.
I think it’s clear that we are disconnected from friends, family, and nature a lot more than we are from our phones and other digital devices. I wonder how many of you can handle even 24 hours without these devices? Here’s your chance to try and change things for the better.
If you can spare 24 hours to join the Global Day of Unplugging you may be surprised at how energized and inspired you may feel! Also, giving your eyes a break from your computer screen can help make your eyes feel better, too! If you can’t manage to be without your phone or computer at least use the Global Day of Unplugging to take constant breaks and reduce stress on yourself and your eyes.
How To Join:
Our contacts sent us a nifty drawstring sack into which we are supposed to put our phone. Instead, play a game (maybe Jenga, or something the entire family can enjoy). Use the daytime to connect with the outside world (instead of just the virtual one).
How to Position Your Computer Screen:
Did you know that if your computer or laptop screen is at the wrong angle, it can contribute to dry, irritated eyes? According to a lot of experts, if you have to lift your chin up or move your head in an unnatural way, it can cause problems. Your monitor should be at eye level or slightly below it. Of course, this also depends upon your height and that of your chair. The monitor should also be about 20 inches (about arm’s length) from your eyes.
