Working from home sounds like a plumb gig, but a new survey shows it’s wrecking us physically. GlassesUSA.com and One Poll got together to find out some of the effects of remote work. When it comes to physical pain, two-in-three have it regularly since being home.
Other findings include:
- The majority wake up with a headache or eye pain seven times a month
- 67-percent experience tech fatigue
- 26-percent say most of their stress is felt in the eyes, followed by the head, shoulders, and legs
- 68-percent point to stress and the home environment for making their primary senses more intense
The good news is three-quarters asked are looking for more ways to take care of their bodies, with most looking for new home de-stressing ideas. Drinking water and napping are the top ways most try and tackle stress, which is mostly caused by screens. That’s way many people are unplugging at night now.
