Micropauses



 

A Micropause is a short break during your work, where you briefly stop what you are doing.

They typically last approximately 15 and 30 seconds, and should be used to relax the muscles being used, thus allowing blood to flow in these muscles, providing the healing and maintenance tasks that blood performs (e.g. removing built-up lactic acid).

During a Micropause you should take your hands right away from the keyboard and mouse.

Also exercise your eyes by focussing your eyes alternately at objects distant and then close. This will exercise the eye lenses, that are otherwise fixed at a set distance for prolonged periods.

It may be beneficial to perform a couple of basic stretching Exercises at this time.
