- Take breaks. Alternate gaming/screen time with a physical activity such as playing a sport or swimming. Also look into setting a timer to alert when it's time to take a break.
- Use good posture. Sit in an upright chair that encourages good posture, as opposed to slouching, while sitting in front of a computer or television screen.
- Stop gaming if there is any pain. Walk away completely from the device if there is any pain in the hand, neck, back, or vision becomes blurry. This is your body telling you it is time to stop.
- Stretch. Perform gentle stretches by bending the tip of the thumb down toward the base of the index finger. Hold for 30 to 60 seconds. Repeat 10 times.
