Mastering the Art of Sitting at Your Computer with Dr. Mitchell Kershner | Dr. Lo Show

Welcome to another episode of the Dr. Lo Radio Show! I really enjoyed recording this episode, and I think you will enjoy it as well. 

Today I am chatting with Dr. Mitchell Kershner, all about working from home in a healthy way! We discuss blue light exposure and the effects it can have on our eyes, skin, and sleep patterns.  We also talk about Ergonomics and the proper use of the screen, keyboard, and monitor placement. Dr. Kershner shares about his upcoming book, Working from Home – Mastering the Art of Sitting at Your Computer that is launching very soon.  It is full of practical types for creating a healthy working environment at home.   In these current times with more people working from home than ever, his book is a must-read. 

If you experience symptoms like headaches, wrist pain, back and neck problems, or even sleep issues, you may be dealing with an unhealthy work environment.  

If you are working from home, this is a must-listen for you!  You can make some small changes that have a big impact on your health. 

If you are listening to this episode and you or someone you know are navigating through any of the health issues we discuss, I would be more than happy to support you in the journey! Feel free to reach out to me to continue this conversation: @doctor_lo
