Adulting is hard, we know. From the terms and definitions we have to memorize in school, the paperwork we have to present to our boss, or the report we have to shove in our clients’ a…desk. And not shove, that’s mean. We mean place on their desks.
Anyway, since life and stress seem to go hand-in-hand, we present you five items that are so simple you wouldn’t believe they might do so much to relieve troubles.
Logitech MX ERGO Trackball
If you have a PC, you have a mouse. And when you have a mouse and use it often, your hand and wrist are exposed to muscular strain.
With Logitech MX ERGO Trackball, however, the strain is reduced by about 20% thanks to its ergonomic design with an adjustable hinge. This means you can customize it so it fits the hand position you’re most comfortable with.
The sculpted shape also ensures your palms and all your fingers receive ample support so they stay comfortable even after hours of working (or gaming).
It also features advanced optical tracking and precision mode button for accurate and speedy control.
And when you’re accurate most of the time, less repetition. That means less stress, too!
