Anything you do too much of whether it be drinking too much water and feeling bloated, or pulling an all-nighter and not feeling well the next day or even sleeping too much and having a headache, will almost always result in some form of negative consequence on your body.

Especially with us students who use the computer for prolonged periods of time. We are either watching our favourite TV shows on Netflix, chatting with friends online or watching cat videos…(when we should all be doing our work *coughcough*).

Whatever you’re doing on your computer, it is important to remember to take breaks. 

A golden rule to follow is the 20/20/20 rule. Take a look below:

20,20,20 rule

We recommend jotting down the 20/20/20 rule on a Post-It note and sticking it somewhere close to your screen so that you can be reminded to take breaks every 20 minutes.

Leave us a comment below on whether this was useful or not. What are your ways of reminding yourself to take breaks? Share with us 🙂
