Laptops have become so convenient with the efficiency of the components, allowing you to get work done or movies watched without having to get out of your bed. However, using a laptop for too many hours can cause strain on your eyes and back. Fortunately, there are some accessories that you can purchase to reduce such pains!

1. Because you tend to blink less often when looking at screens, buying an anti-glare filter will aid in reducing eyestrain. You can get Protection Filters from Staples, with prices ranging from $35 to $55, all depending on how big the size of your monitor is. If you want a bit of privacy from people sitting next to you or around you, you can get the Privacy Filter, which is quite inexpensive, $40 to $60. The Privacy Filter make the screen on your laptop seem black to anyone, except for anyone sitting right in front of the monitor.

2. Do you use your laptop on your desk? Does your neck and back throb afterwards? Experts say that the problem with laptops is that the keyboard and screen are too close together, causing you to squeeze your arms together so that you can type and it also leads to hunching over just to see the screen. Good news though! You can now purchase the APC Notebook Stand at Best Buy for $80. What the stand does is it elevates the screen and allows you to connect a full size keyboard and mouse. And with a 360° swivel, it allows you to move into your most comfortable position. Not only that, but it comes with a circulatory air cooling design, which provides additional cooling for your notebook computer! What a way to get your money's worth.

3. Laptops heat up really fast and therefore, buying a cooling pad would be a smart move. It has been proven that placing notebooks on laps for prolonged periods can cause cause fertility problems in men. However, by using a notebook cooler, $40 from Staples, it will conduct heat away the aluminum surface. The cooler will prevent you from getting burnt and extend your notebook's life by preventing it from overheating.

4. And last, but certainly not least, the most important thing to remember is to TAKE A BREAK! Step away from your beloved laptop, and stretch for 5 to 10 minutes. Not only do your eyes need a break from staring at the screen for so long, but your body needs a good stretch. Stretching will do wonders to your aches and pains. Thanks to karen for these infos!
