Playing in an online casino can sometimes leave you with mixed feelings – joy at winning money, but also physical pain.
That’s because playing is so much fun that people can sometimes spend many hours in a single session without realising how much time has gone by.
That’s why it is important to put some thought into your environment, before you even log on.
Of course, these days most people play via their laptops, so there’s no end of possibilities for where we might be – lying on the bed, sitting at the dining table, standing at the breakfast bar or lounging on the sofa in front of the TV.
It’s a good idea to make sure you’re comfortable in the position you choose, but also that you have a good posture. You don’t want to find that, after several hours of playing roulette or blackjack, you have a backache that lasts throughout the next day at the office.
Not enough people give consideration to their neck when using a computer. In the days when everyone used a computer monitor, it was common for us to have it at the right height so that we didn’t need to be looking up or down at it.
Laptops are different, though, as invariably they are below our eye line which means we have our heads tilted forward. Over time, that puts pressure on the neck.
Ideally, we should make sure we have our head supported. It could just be a matter of putting a cushion behind us so that the neck is in a natural position and not bent over all the time.
Another thing to bear in mind is the legs, because they can become tight or even cramped by sitting in one place for hours on end. It’s a good idea to just stand up for a few moments every so often and shake our legs to make sure we have good circulation.
