The Fifty Yard Stare (Writing Quick Tip)

Ever get yourself on a rush of writing, only to find that your eyes hurt at the end from staring at the screen?

Then take some time to gaze into the distance as you go.

A significant length of time doing close work can lead to squinting, and tired eyes. For immediate relief, use eyedrops, or put a cool cloth on your closed eyes but, to prevent this happening, take regular breaks to stop and shift our gaze from the screen to looking into the distance in order to rest both your vision and the muscles that control your eyes. If you get caught up in writing and forget to break, set a timer to remind you.

Rest your eyes, save yourself  from eyestrain…and then write more great things!
