Did you know that you have to be fit to work on your computer? Aha, now I have your attention. Working on computers like laptops, desktops, tablets and more is a daily event for most of us. I do not have to list the advantages of these devices, I am sure you are very aware of that. However, I totally underestimated the health risks associated with computers. And I am not talking "radiation" and all those controversial topics. I am talking ergonomics. That is a field of study that attempts to reduce strain, fatigue, and injuries by improving product design and work space arrangement. The goal is a comfortable, relaxed posture. Symptoms may include pain, muscle fatigue, loss of sensation, tingling and reduced performance. And I thought it was just cranky old me. lol And the remedy?
At least every 10 minutes, take a short (10-20 second) break. Take your hands off the keyboard and move!
Every 30-60 minutes, take a brief (2-5 minute) break to stretch and/or walk around.
There is a lot of helpful information on the internet about ergonomics so do yourself a favor and read up about it. It just might remove that pain you have when you and your computer are entertaining each other. Please find a helpful link at the bottom of this newsletter. Happy Stitching Annemarie

I can remember growing up in a home where mom cooked wonderful food, some I really loved and some... well not so much. But today I still fondly remember the pleasant times we spent having just a regular meal, as a family. And those trips to the farm where grandma cooked our favorite meals were the best. Her specialty was Cinnamon Dumplings. Oh my, those memories make my mouth water right now. Click the link to a traditional South African recipe. Yet when I think about it, there had to be a lot more than just the food to make family meals part of my food memories.
