Sitting down and studying for hours can also be stressful to your body. You can feel the building tension in your neck, shoulders and arms when you are doing a research or studying in front of a computer. Spending long hours studying or researching can cause your eyes to tire out, experience fatigue and headaches. There are ways so that you can avoid these study strains every time you spend hours on your computer studying or researching.

It would really help if you take a break from staring at the computer every hour. A ten minute break will do just to rest your eyes, hands and shoulders. You can walk around so that your eyes will not be staring at the computer screen all the time.

If you have time, try to study in the daytime. Fatigue may set in quickly if you study late at night and you are already tired from all your day time activities.

It is also important to adjust the lighting in your study area. If the lighting is too low it may cause strain in your eyes and you would easily feel tired. However, too much light can also hurt your eyes because of the glare. Avoid lights that are too bright.

It is very common for students to suffer from eyestrain. One important key is to have your monitor positioned properly so that you are not looking at the screen straight on. The top part of the screen should not be higher than your eyes and you should be viewing it at a slight downward angle. This is very much advisable if you have a big computer screen.

You can also lighten the background of your computer screen. To make it easier on your eyes, you can increase the font size of your documents and the light intensity of your screen.
