Last week I have been doing one thing I have never done before: leaving the camera on all day using  Picture-in-Picture Extension, so I could see myself in a floating window (always on top of other windows) while doing everything.

It's weird at first. I am the kind of people not looking at mirrors as much as possible except brushing teeth, washing my face and combing my hair to make sure it's clean and tidy.  Also, I know what I am looking at in front of desks: frowning my face, shrinking my neck and keeping still. It's not a nice picture. I wrote a post about my changes after using a sit-stand desk over a month before, it's not good enough, and more I should do to optimize my daily over 12-hour-working. So I begin leaving my camera on all day. It's great to see what has happened to me.

#1 Never too close to the screen. By keeping an eye on my face size in the window, the direct influence is I would never be too close to the screen which I always do unconsciously. 

#2 Relax shoulder and neck regularly. Fit distance from the screen, I could see my shoulder shrinking obviously. So when Pomodoro ends, stretching my body to look better is an absolute choice.

#3 Better mouseless and touch-typing. Using the mouse and watching the keyboard to type are inefficient, but it's hard to get rid of. Without too much difficulty, they are not in my priorities anymore, because I hardly look down now. That's great.

Have you ever tried on doing so?  Welcome to tell me your experience on feedback.

    @5plus6 Sounds like an interesting experiment to try.

      @phaidenbauer Actually, real-time myself in a floating window is the best reminder of self-improvement. I'd like to hear about your experiment feedback later.
