You Have Been Using Gadgets Wrong Your Entire Life

Late night texting is the best thing!
Hey, I prefer working on the laptop while sitting on the bed, I cannot use it on the table.
I have got my television box set up in my exercise room, that helps you know.

We all have got some habits or say unintentional habits of using our devices in the most comfortable way. When we got tired, we change to another comfortable position. But although we have listened to many people that our devices might be hurting our body, we do not try to explore that what might be the wrong ways that should be left and what are the right ways that we should adopt in our daily life.

So here, I have compiled a few incorrect postures that we unthinkingly follow and what are the correct ways we should strictly take up.
