According to doctors, 4 hours is the maximum for a person to use computer healthily per day. How many hours do you spend before computer?

Oh God I definatly spend more than that online a day! I usually lie down with my lap top on my stomach because I have a really bad back. Muscle spasms, painful but not too worriesome. I generally spend my time on mylot or other money making websites. Perhaps once I get a "real" job I will spend less time on the internet... maybe :p

The time I spend in front of the computer varies from day to day! I find the best thing to do is to stretch often, squeeze your muscles slowly and hold, do yoga exercises whenever you can, and take a walk as often as you can! I think the amount of time we spend doing other things, like walking, lifting weights, swimming, and all that is much better of an indicator of your health now and in the future!

I would sit in front of a computer for 2 to 3 hour straight then take maybe a 4-5 hour break to do other things. I stay in front of the screen for any longer because I start to get headaches from looking at the bright monitor for to long.

Way too many. Definitely more than 4. I'd say I spend anywhere from 8 to 10 hours in a day in front of my computer. Besides cleaning the house, fixing dinner, laundry and normal household chores my life is the computer. Recently I have decided to try to diversify my interests by doing scrapbooking which I also enjoy. It just means having alot of stuff spread out all over the place so I hate getting it all out. The computer doesn't call for alot of mess or unnecessary papers and things.

If it's only healthy for 4 hours, then I'm REALLY unhealthy.. On a typical day 7/8 hours, but this week when I don't have school it's more like 12/13/14 hours......
