With the double vertical mouse set up, I’m dividing the micromovements of clicking between both hands, and my hands/wrists on both sides are always moving (rather than staying locked in one position) . For me it just leads to natural intuitive freedom to shift between both hands for the fastest results

I found it to be worse than clocking… with the trackball (I think) you are making more thumb and finger micromovements whuch lead to over use/carpal tunnel symptoms… instead of moving a mouse with your arm, you’re moving a trackball with your thumb, and you tend to hold the wrist in a stationary locked position

Yes - I have a lefty and a righty vertical mouse - both plugged in at the same time - use both simultaneously

Yes - this is super geeky but I actually use a lefty ergonomic mouse and a righty ergonomic mouse at the same time 😂 sometimes I’m using both simultaneously, and sometimes I’m using one or the other - definitely alleviated over use pain. When I’m using both simultaneously I can move really fast

- gratitude journal - get out in nature - hike/go to the beach - get off screens to be fully present in nature surroundings - experience the awe and wonder - travel to a place where you don’t know the language or is completely new

This is exactly what Steven Pressfield wrote in the War of Art… read it Amateurs wait for perfection. Professionals do the work. Work compounds like interest. You can’t edit an empty screen or notebook to make it better.
