The human body really isn’t meant to perform for hours on end some of the tasks that our modern writing and office equipment demand of it.
All too often, our necks cramp from looking at computer screens at slanted angles, our eyes burn from staring too long at the fixed distance of a computer monitor, and our fingers turn numb from the strain of our wrists performing repetitive motions. If you’ve spent all day working in an office under such conditions, the last thing your body wants to do once you’re home at night or for the weekend is to keep it up by writing.
Take some time to explore ergonomics issues and see if you can modify your writing space so you can get back to working on that book.
