Example text

If your screen was previously correctly positioned (and that’s a big if) you’ll now find it needs to be lowered. Before you start heaving the screen about, try it with a book. Open the book, then hold it at arm’s length where your screen is now. Focus on a word or phrase, then lower the book as you lengthen your neck. Feel where the book is most comfortable to read – that’s where your screen should be. By the way, this does not mean that you must hold your head vertical at all times.

Turn your back on the large mirror and align the hand mirror to view the reflection of the back of your neck in the large mirror. Now think through the images in Exercise 1. Notice that if you don’t stiffen your neck but allow it to release upwards, it will ease back into your collar, your head will roll very slightly forward (as if rather more weight has dropped into your forehead) and, as your neck muscles continue to release tension, you will see that there is rather more to the back of your neck.
