The creative industry comes with its varying challenges. Here are some life hacks to help get through them:
- Eye strain – sitting in an editing suite or standing behind a camera for hours on end means eye strain is common. Try the 20-20-20 rule; look at something 20ft away for 20 seconds, every 20 mins.It’s a proven method to stop eye strain…and headaches.
- Coughing – We all get coughing fits and it’s something we’ve learnt over the years of streaming and producing live TV. So, to all the presenters and crew off camera having a coughing fit; raising your hands above your head should bring a swift end to the coughing.
- Aches and pains – Carrying equipment and operating cameras means our bodies are put through a lot, especially during 24 hours streams. Aches and pains are common which is why we suggest stretching before carrying or operating any equipment.
