(Health) The average American spends nearly half of every day starting at a screen, and sometimes our bodies pay a price:

Digital eye strain
Tons of time spent starting at a screen can cause dryness, blurred vision, and headaches. The Fix - Follow the 20-20-20 rule. For every 20 minutes you look at a screen, look up and at an object 20 feet in the distance for 20 seconds. Also, don't forget to blink.

Text neck
Long period of staring down at a small screen can lead to muscle pain, pinched nerves, even a morphed neck. It can cause wrinkles, too. The Fix - Skip the bent neck and hold your phone higher so you can look at it straight on.

Smartphone thumb
The perma-bent texting position can cause inflammation, irritation, and pain. The Fix - Take regular breaks from your phone and mix up the way you type, using different fingers.
