Working from our beds or couches! How many of the following are true for you?

  2. Laptop is the only machine you use for work

  3. Screen time running upto 10+ hours

  4. In meetings every other hour

  5. Have stopped using pen and paper for quick notes.

We all are pretty aware of how detrimental these practices are. Thus, this is your sign to stop them and have an alternative one. You are probably hurting your eyes, back, posture and reducing your work quality.
