Welcome to the craziness of Silicon Valley. We live in a place where everyone knows what it’s like to have a career that’s “more than a job, less than a life”. We are surrounded by high tech workers, and most of us work, or have worked, in high tech at some time in the last 20 years. It’s hustle, bustle, high pressure work. It’s rewarding, yes, but it can take its toll on our physical well-being.
All this high tech work, and the high tech devices we use every day, can cause physical stress on wrists, necks, shoulders, and eyeballs. It’s also likely shortening attention spans and potentially weakening personal relationships. The heavy stress that comes with a high-reward job can also cause us to lose focus.
