Tips To Maintain Your Health While Blogging

Share this Post >>

As you see we at TechTricksWorld.Com, keep on Sharing technology, SEO tips , blogging tips etc But Today I wanted to write something apart from these stuff and I got an idea to write about something which can be helpful for bloggers personally.

Wait, I am not a doctor to suggest what we bloggers should do but on the basis of my research and personal experiences, I am sharing few health tips exclusive for bloggers and other computer users.

Every blogger knows that how much a full time blogger sit in front of computer for producing new content for his/her blog & other’s blog(guest posting), building links for the blog, surfing for new ideas , thinking for money making ideas and so on. In short, life of a blogger is not so easy as it seems. They have to work very hard to get few dollars. Every day they have to face new challenges because of rising competitions, changing search algorithms such as Google Panda, Penguin and others.

To compete with these challenges bloggers have to work very hard and this results into sleepless nights, continue sitting in front of computer for long hours etc. These can lead to many physical problems. here are few of them listed here:

  • Back Pain
  • Eye Problems
  • Neck Pain
  • Headache
  • Weight Gain

Here Are few tips for you to keep these problems away from You:

Back Pain: Back pain is obvious problem in all the bloggers or in the persons who sit in front of PC for long hours. Do these to avoid:

  • To avoid this try to sit in straight posture.
  • Bring a chair that allows you to sit in the way that while sitting your knees and hips are be in level.
  • Keep on taking breaks while working. Don’t sit continuously.

Eye Problems: Eye problems are frequent when you continuously look at monitor or you laptop screen. To avoid this you can do these:

  • Try to give rest to your eyes on regular intervals.
  • When you feel pain in eyes then go and rinse your eyes with cold water.
  • Use rose water (Gulab Jal) for eyes. It gives relief to eyes.

Neck Pain: When you keep on looking at your monitor, your neck doesn’t move for long duration and this leads to neck pain. To avoid this do these

  • Avoid sitting for long duration continuously in-front of PC. Take breaks at regular intervals and go for walk if possible.
  • Relax your by stretching and massage. There also neck exercise which you can learn from Internet and do it as advised.

Headache: Headache is the most frequent problem which happens due to excessive load on your eyes and mind. To avoid it do these:-

  • When you feel pain in your eyes just stop working and give relax to your eyes and rinse your eyes with cold water. Don’t rub your eyes ever!
  • If you feel that your mind is not working then don’t pressurize your mind and take break. Go for walk, spend some time with your friends or family then get back to your work. This way you can avoid frequent headaches.

Weight Gain: This is now becoming a big issue because when bloggers sit for long hours while working, they keep on eating fatty and salty stuff and after eating they don’t go out for a walk rather they keep on working. This leads to increase fat in their body which leads to weight gain. And as you all know the losses of being fat, the biggest problem in fat people are the chances of heart attacks and diabetes.
So to avoid this do these:

  • As usual I advised in all the points don’t sit for long hours continuously.
  • Don’t eat the foods which contain so much of sugar, fat and starches. Avoid them because they are high in calorie and as you keep on sitting and don’t do physical work those calories Don’t get burnt. This results into obesity.

After all these suggestion there are few more suggestions for all the bloggers which are given as

  • Go for walk on daily basis at least for 30 minutes in the morning.
  • Drink Plenty of water instead of taking tea or coffee all the time.
  • Protect your eyes by using protective glass on laptop screens or monitor’s screen.
  • Do play in the evening such as cricket, football or any game which requires running.
  • Take proper sleep for at least of 7 hours and at most of 8 hours.

I hope these tips can help you in someway to focus on your health as well because health is the real wealth. If this is not with you, all the other wealth of yours are just waste. Thus, eat healthy, do work out and stay fit and healthy.

    A great tip that someone gave me to rest your eyes is to look at the keyboard while typing instead of looking at the screen, the way we normally do

  3. says

    Hi Atish,

    Some interesting points, I daily go for morning walk and do it for almost 40 minutes. I generally try to take break after 2-3 hours for at least 10 minutes. It helps you concentrate more while working on PC.

    Yeah, it is a real strain to maintain healthy – I like to go for a run in the morning and afternoon – it breaks up the day

  5. says

    Hey , i can’t believe that you have posted my problems. Now only i am realizing that this problem is for all bloggers, i thought it is only me. You know, i am sitting infront of my pc for 16 hours that brings heavy pain and weight.

    Thank you for this health tips apart from the tech tricks.

  6. Coin dealer says

    These are the most helpful health tips for all the bloggers and computer addicts or the people who has to sit on computer for long hours.

    Personally, I just force myself to get up from my desk and get out and do something – anything – at least two or three times a week. It’s tough sometimes, but it works for me. Thanks for the post!

  10. joey says

    Whenever I feel pain in my eyes, I paused for a while and then look in a distance. This helps me relax my eyes, 5-10 minutes would be better. I’m just wondering, wouldn’t be harmful to your vision if you would wash your tired eyes? I believe, this is not applicable, just need time for your eyes to relax first before making it wet.

  11. Mike@Accommodation in Edinburgh says

    I try to get up and walk around as often as I can. Drinking lots of water = lots of bathroom breaks.

    Its also a good idea to move your shoulders around as being hunched over all day can play havoc with your joints/tendons – as I’m experiencing right now :(

  12. Emily says

    I wonder if someone could possible to utilize all such kind of recommendations daily. I think he will not be able to work, because of lack time to work :) Anyway, exercises in very very important indeed.

    • says

      Yes You are right but we should care about our health as well as our work. I know its tough to follow all but if we maintain a proper schedule then we can improve our health and work.

  13. says

    “Drink Plenty of water instead of taking tea or coffee all the time.” Whats bad to drink tea? This is the first time that i heared about not to drink tea. Im shure u dont mean icetea! 😀

    • says

      taking tea is not bad but excessive intake of tea or coffee is bad for health. And bloggers always take tea multiple times when busy with work without realizing that they have already taken so many cups of tea. So I want to say that take tea or coffee but just 2-3 times in a day. Drink lots of water this can improve concentration.

  14. says

    All these tips are so true. For the eye problems, you can just make sure not to stare at the screen too long. It will help if you keep making sure that you are blinking instead of just stared at the screen. I am in front of the computer all day, but i make sure that i have to at least take one hour out of the day to hit the gym. Just make sure to tell yourself that gym is mandatory and you can skip out. :)

    I can really relate to this post. I’m not a blogger, only a freelance writer, but like bloggers I stay in front of the computer for long hours. Writing online or blogging really is not as easy as other people think it is. Problems with my health started when I quit my day job to work from home full time. Online work made me sit for longer hours which led to problems with my blood circulation. I experienced hyperventilation because I didn’t move around like I used to. It was really a scary experience and I learned my lesson. Now, I make it a point to stand up and walk around every 2 hours when I’m at work.

  16. Sophia says

    Thank you so much for your reminding. Nowadays, we more and more rely on PC, nevertheless do the website business or work in office. So it is necessary for us to pay more attention on our health, Your blog give a lot wonderful method, thanks 😀

  17. Stuart FL Chiropractor says

    I agree with your post. I know the big thing for me is my posture while on my laptop. Not having the proper posture while working will affect your walk, sleep, and other things.

    I’ve had to sleep on the floor just to get my back right after messing it up not sitting properly. I now have a chiropractor that I see regularly to keep standing tall. I definitely have to keep the other things in mind….especially the eyes.

  18. Pete Goumas says

    Thank you for the tips, they are very helpful. My problem was with the eyes. They would strain to a near breaking point red, and had no clue how to deal with the problem effectively. Im really interested in this julab gel. What does it do exactly and where can you find it? Thanks for sharing I appreciate that!

  19. saba@Massage and Beauty says

    Great points, but I think it is true with any screen based work. I remember the days when I would spend a good 10-2 hours sitting in front of computer, but with more and more people blogging these days, a reminder won’t hurt. now if I could just remember not to slouch

    cheers .

  20. Anna says

    I like your post a lot. All of us are exposed to so called “microtraumatism”‘ – repeating movements that are potentially harmful for your health. And it is good that you emphasize on that! I can recommend at least weekends some active physical exercises.

  21. AMit says

    I think we should give 2 hours to our body like we must do excercise or join arobics ,gym classes because if we not do weight gain will cause severe damage to our health and we lose all things that we are doing for our life even our life too ..lots of risk in future

  22. Frank@AcronisCoupons says

    Hi Atish,

    Another thing you can include in your article is circulation problems. Spending the whole day sitting in the same spot can cause bad circulation or even blood clots. I often get pains in my legs due to this, so I try to break up the day by walking to the store, along with stretching and exercising.

  23. Edward says

    I try to avoid weight gain by doing short jogs once I take a break from blogging. My eyes and back are usually my problem. Sometimes when focusing too much on my writing, I forget my sitting posture and end up slacking. That is when I realize I need a good chair instead. Thank you for the tip on applying cold water on my eyes, I wasn’t sure before this would solve my problem.

  24. says

    The best tip I can offer to avoid all of this is to try to maintain a schedule that balances your health with blogging. For example, go for a run or cycle before you start blogging in the morning, take a break at lunch (don’t eat anything that’s bad for you though) and then have an afternoon break to stretch your legs.

    Sometimes it can be difficult to stay in a schedule but it should be worth it in the end.

  25. Bethany says

    Hi Atish

    You make some very good points along with some practical advice on dealing with the problems of being a full time blogger.

    My own ways of trying to maintain a healthy existance start with my chair – which is a very comfortable high back chair with lumbar support. I also take regular breaks to rest my eyes, with a view out of the window that allows me to re-focus at regular intervals. Finally, I go to the gym 3 times a week, on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I usually go just after lunch so it splits up the time that I’m sat in front of my computer.

    I go to the gym regularly, because i am aware that most of my time is spent on my butt in front of the computer and if i don’t… i will end up looking like the guy in the post image.

    Although, i do need to rest my eyes more often. Matter of fact, they ache right now because i’ve been staring at the screen all day!

    These are some excellent tips and this is a GREAT post. Very unique and helpful. Thanks!

    Nice article. Good points you mentioned.
    The only think I don’t do is the 7-8 hours sleep, the rest I do more or less.

    Thanks for great post.

  29. priya says

    ya it is equally imp to take care of health if we are fultime bloggers.
    health is wealth. otherwise no matter u have 100 blogs earning decent revenue..what is the use of it, if we cant enjoy the fruits of our hardwork.
    always take atleast 2mins break for every 20 minutes at the screen, there are also softwares available to remind this. or u can keep screensaver or schedule it accordingly.

  30. Kay Elisabet@Guld Köpes says

    I often stretch a lot when I’m sitting at my desk. It’s also nice to have a window close by, I find it rests the eyes to look outside, especially if it’s a beautiful view. I didn’t know rose water was good though, I’ll have to check it out!

  31. says

    Great points, but I think it is true with any screen based work. I remember the days when I would spend a good 10-2 hours sitting in front of computer, but with more and more people blogging these days, a reminder won’t hurt. now if I could just remember not to slouch

  32. Herniawan@Computer and Software Information says

    A nice article about blogging activity impact. The problem that I feel is often eye problems and weight gain. Eye problems caused by beam monitor. Weight gain due to lack of movement.

    After reading your tips, I will try to implement. But the tips are terkhir hard for me to apply my ingredients every night because i insomnia. Was it impact of the computer screen radiation?

  33. says

    Atish,
    This is the first time I actually read a blog that discusses the healthy aspects of writing a blog. Though all your tips are pretty standard and known, it is amazing the number of people that do not apply them. Very informative.
    The water tip at the end of your article, should normally be the easiest – but then again many people forget to drink enough.

  34. Aniket@GTX 570 says

    those were some really nice tips to remain healthy… drinking lots of water is a good habit….. i put protective monitor color in order avoid any problems…

  35. sriharsh biswal says

    Great stuff. really liked this article, i will read a bit more in your site after i’m finished with my work! =)

  36. says

    Internet marketing and blogging can be rewarding and like having a day job, can expose us to the same illness and could give health risks too. The posture in sitting plays a big role when it comes to body pains. I stand every once in a while and stretch my back and arms to avoid having back pains and so that my arms won’t be strained too much. Maintaining a balanced and healthy diet is the basic and most important regimen that each of us should do daily to keep our body strong and healthy.

  37. d and g concepts says

    Really cool tips. i have no any other problem except eye. While i am on screen of my PC, i lave my eye in every hour and i feel better.

      Nirmala,

      I am not a doctor or something who can give expert advices but yes these are the common problems which can be seen in an Internet addict. you can follow these tips to stay healthy.

      Thanks For dropping by.

  41. says

    Great post, as always!!!
    Its always a pleasure to read what you put up here, Atish! :)
    Yea, we all need to be careful.
    No health- no wealth. Remember this adage?
    Besides, I would also like to point out the value of sleeping in time at night. Staying awake till late at night (and that too, night after night) takes a heavy toll on the metabolic system and nervous system too.

    Eye sight weakness and the belly fat issue these are the two issues i am facing a lot.

    For reducing body fat i am preferring two to three cups of green tea in a day. Green tea is a very nice medicine for the fit and and fine body and it is also very useful if any one wants to burn the extra body fat.

    problem related to spine is too much effecting now a days to professionals who have very long sitting habits its better to have a short break in between and to some yoga,mediation to retain energy..as someone says “health is wealth” and it will remain wealth always

  44. says

    Hlo Atish, I feel that you are rising and shining all the way from technology to personal information. Your every blog got a voice. I will also follow in my everyday life your tips on health which is very remarkable.

  45. Siddharth Sharma says

    Aha!!! @Atish Bro.

    You are right.. I am affacted from Back Pain.. :(

    This is Too Painful for me .. This Computer is Useful and also Harful for our body.

    But Now I’m Doing care of My Body.

  46. says

    Ahh, all things that most of us bloggers don’t consider until they actually start to happen.

    Taking small breaks to go for a walk or do some other exercises along with drinking water have been two of the best remedies for me as they renew your energy and can bring fresh ideas. Besides that, proper sleep has got to be the most important.

    Better to be aware and prevent these issues from occurring before they get out of hand.

    Thanks for sharing, Atish.
