I don't like, however, having to spend long hours in front of a computer screen to do my job.
Is there any way at all that one can combine the enthusiasm for writing and IM and simultaneously do away with the need to spend so many hours of the day crouched by a PC?
Or at least can we discuss ways to make the physical experience more bearable?
Some tools and items that have helped me include:
- Computer glasses
- Dragon Naturally Speaking
- Working on a balcony
- Putting teabags or cucumber slices on my eyes after a long session online
So, to sum up, I guess what I am asking is does the amount of hours you spend on the computer have a negative effect on your lifestyle, and if so, then how do you manage it, and is it worth it???
Is there some happy medium, some techno-outdoor compromise that I have failed to yet discover?
Or is the solution to just pay some nameless VA in some developing country peanuts to carry out the more tedious of the IM tasks so that I might have more time to climb mountains and go fishing?
