A question about Health

something I never though it would bother me but, 80 product shots later here I am...

both wrists are aching like crazy (even thou I use tablet) and from now on I decide its time to take care of myself.

do you guys do any exercises, or have any tips on preventing this things to happen... i.e. use wrist support.

At the moment I find that putting an ice pack helps relieve the pain, as well as taking some ibuprofen... the worst thing is I gotta finish the job!s!

Re: A question about Health

The only thing that ever worked for me was to just stop retouching for several hours. After years of doing the contrary, I now have the mindset that after 8 to 10 hours, a serious recharge is in order. My work is better for it. Although it is frustrating when a deadline is rapidly approaching.

We have to watch out for shoulder pain too.

Buying a nice chair and working with a nice natural light helps a lot, beside exercises, of course!
