Here are tips if you are planning to do a gaming marathon:
- After an hour or so take a break! Walk around, get blood flowing to your limbs! (Play the Kinect and move your body!)
- Eat snacks! Get food in you.
- Drink plenty of liquids, DO NOT DRINK a lot of caffeine!
- Get in a comfortable position, you might strain your muscles if seated wrong. Relax your body.
