When school started, so did the number of zoom meetings on my calendar. Eye strain and fatigue are problems, especially after reading and writing for each of the classes is accomplished.

One of my instructors started a 20/20/20 portion to the class meetings. Every 20 minutes, stare for 20 seconds at something that is at least 20 feet away. This seems to help a lot with eye strain and tension. He says it’s best to do it if you are looking at something beautiful, like a tree or the ocean. I end up looking at whatever is across the garage, since that’s where I usually do most of my classes.

It’s worth trying. I may have to paint something to hang 20 feet away, so I have something interesting to look at when I am staring.
