Last time I had a check up with my doctor, he said I have minor curvature of the spine I just realized the other day that when I am on the computer, I ofter rest my left elbow on the desk with my chin on my hand - now that puts me bending far to the left ... hmmm... so my spine is curving that way. I also know that if I do not rest my arms after so many minutes, my wrists get achy and my neck and shoulders tense up. Do you pay attention to your posture when on the computer? Do you do exercises or yoga to help your flexibility and fitness?

Good for you, Chef. You have some great ideas and habits. Yes, maybe a new chair would help. Fortunately I am more aware now of the importance of paying attention to my body's messages and will develop better habits regarding computer time. Thanks.
Nice help for Phyllis, chef-de-jour.
You should not get dizzy. Check supplements or tablets you may be taking, or have a scan. Perhaps you can also reduce your hours but check the other things first.
Hi joween. Good news! I am getting a laptop soon. Thanks for your contribution to the question.

Hi Kathy. You are right - every little physical thing we are able to do should be seen as a gift. It is a gift for me to be able to type and create stories, poems, etc. Thanks.
