For one, I type using Dvorak. Does it lessen the chance of RSI? Who knows, I don’t, and there’s no real hard evidence, but I do make less trips to the upper and lower rows.

Second, get a good chair that you can just sit back and relax in. I can’t count the days I’ve had to stop working because I got a strain headache in the back of my head.

Take a break every so often, you’ll thank yourself for it.

Finally, don’t put your head up and squint at the screen. If the text is too hard to read, decrease the resolution until you can.
