BE CAREFUL OF NINTENDO / MOBILE TEXTING THUMB
Clicking with one finger for long periods of time and standing for a long period of time, cause repetitive strain.
Now officially called Nintendo Thumb.
One finger tapping on touch screens do the same thing.
Hunched over the computer, your neck and shoulders also seize up.
Your joystick thumb and finger can lose blood circulation, give numbness and seize up a hand into being useless.
So take lots of breaks and read your magazines about video games, or even, shock, horror go out for a walk in the park and smell the flowers when we have some sunshine.
Without sunshine, we don't get the vitamin D we need for our bodies.
And yes. don't ride your bmx bike, inline skater or skateboard over the flowers, as without bees there is no life on earth. And this also means you.
