I was wondering where we draw the line to using a computer - health wise How many hours do you think can be called healthy use of a computer and how many hours can be called unhealthy use in relation to spending time on a computer? I think I spend far too much time, which is most of my waking day and night - What about you?

Hi. I usually spend 10 to 12 hours on net and on other things on computer, even then I don't think that it is that unhealthy, that I should think about it. Its just the way you do it. If it is never a long session then it is alright.

I think is TOO MUCH ! Come on ! 12 hours ? How many hours do you sleep ? When you eat ? I can' belive this, and if it's true, you should reduce the hours spent in front of your monitor, my opinion...

Tone the monitor light down I suppose, or buy some of the dark glasses made for loooking at a monitor for extended amounts of time.

I was reading on the Internet, and also talking to some specialist. They recommand to use the computer maximum 3 hours per day, so if you use about 3 hours daily I think you aren't in a real danger. If you are using 6-7 hours day by day, the problems with health and other problems may come.

I think between 3 to 5 hours can be enough to use in a day but if the time exceeds then intervals are needed otherwise using computers continuously can be seriously harmful for health ........
