Some ergonomics tips, especially for artists. :)
Keep Computer and Smartphone Screens from Destroying Your Eyes
Staring at a screen all day can cause eye strain and other vision problems. Keep your eyes healthy and prevent other issue like neck and shoulder pain by practicing good “eye-gonomics.”

Observations of Ergonomics: SketchUp Ergonomics: Reach
When laying out the equipment for a workstation design, it is important to make sure that the items are within comfortable reach, especially the equipment used most often. The limiting factor in this design is the reach of small women, therefore by designing for 5th percentile females, everybody…
“In the 21st century workplace, we covet expensive ergonomic workstations. But one can’t easily collaborate with others from the isolation of our cubicles, and most office furniture doesn’t support the casual exchanges that can lead to big ideas.

Clinical Psychology: The focus here is the assessment and appropriate treatment of mental illness and abnormal behaviours.
