We Make Mistakes While Using Technological Devices

Technological devices can cause various health problems, from a headache to eye diseases, when they are used incorrectly.

Mistake: Make a long talk by putting the phone between the ear and shoulder.

Correct: If it possible use headphones while talking on the phone. If you are not using headphones, keep your phone conversation as short as possible.

Mistake: Looking at the device screen for a long time.

Correct: Do not look at the screen for more than 20 minutes.

Mistake: Sit in a way of unsupported and oblique.

Correct: When using technological devices, set your back in a vertical position and supported by a pillow. Your feet should touch the ground fully, the height of your seat or chair should be such that your hips and knees will position 90 degrees.

Mistake: Use the device by putting on the floor or bed and lying face down.
