I have been online for awhile now, so I think I need to give my eyes are break from staring at the screen for so long. I do get headaches, so to prevent one from coming on again I will have a break from the computer. It is hard to pull myself away, but I will. Back soon :D

I think that is a good thing to do to help yourself. I think my screen is helping me fall asleep so much. I just don't know how to tell if it's too high or not.

That sounds lovely :D The problem is once I sit in a hot bath or have a hot shower I can't get out!

@gudheart Is that gravity or lethargy?

@boiboing Just the heat makes me want to stay in the hot bath or in a hot shower as I find it unbearable getting out into the cold again!

It's good to have a break for your eyes. Every day I had to spent about 7 hours on the computer to do my job. The long time faced to the computer makes me eye have a little uncomfortable. ..

I cerrainly know what you mean. Before I had my cataract surgery, I would get headaches from being on here to long. Since I have had the surgery last year, I can stay on a little longer now, before I take a break from it. I do have other things to do though, so like you, I have to give my eyse a little rest, and then come back, when I am done.

I managed to rest my eyes in time before it triggered a bad headache.

@gudheart Oh, that is good, as headaches, can really hurt, and they can last a long time too. I don't get them anymore since I had my surgery. Before that though, I got them a lot and had to rest my eyes all the time.

It's always good to take a break from the computer even if it's only 5 minutes although it should be longer.

I spend hours and hours at the computer myself sometimes, so I know the feeling! Hope the headaches aren't migraines? You can turn down the brightness of your screen also or make the fonts larger which could help reduce eye strain .

I can understand your feeling as sometimes I will feel the same. And this is why last night I went to sleep earlier than before because I felt very tired.

Good idea! It's good not to stay here too long in one shot. Not good for the eyes and the body.

Yes, it's always good to give your eyes a break. I need to take mine soon. As a programmer, I used to look at the screen for almost the whole day. When I came home, I might still continued to look at the computer screen. Until a point, my eyes were painful and a doctor advised or "forced" me to take a break every 30 minutes looking at the screen, otherwise I might not be able to look at the screen anymore.
