Restraining your stress at work

If your job requires long hours in front of computer, whether you're a hi-tech veteran covered by scars of past industry bubble or a callow novice making your first overwork hours - you've either faced the consequences already or are aware of them (being honest to yourself).
Glasses, stress, wrist pains - those are just harmless door bells ringing in front of invited guests - heart attacks, rheumatism, social and family problems.
While I can't order you a recipe to working day of eight hours (being working for something like eleven last months) - here are two RSI-antidote tips.

  • The first one is my favorite stress-reliever for the few last years - Aire Freshner. It's small tray-icon application that can play sounds giving you an atmosphere of various nature environments.

  • The second one is Workrave - it's must-have organizer/reminder for your stress-recovery activity during the workday.

Both are free (Aire is donationware) and useful like a water in Sahara Dezert…
