On concussion protocol, the first thing they tell you is to limit your screen time. Last week, I thought it was a bunch of hooey, but I did as I was instructed and followed the doctor’s orders. Yesterday was my first day resuming my normal activities, including my work and time with my computer and phone. By the end of the day, my head was hurting, I felt nauseous, and concentrating was difficult. I shut everything off and went to bed.
But it makes me wonder. If screen time is this detrimental to a concussed brain, what effects is it having when we think we are fine?
No matter the challenges and the obstacles blocking my way, I maintain the item at the top of my list as a non-negotiable. Yesterday I wrote 404 words.
Did you write yesterday?
Keep on writing.
