On the Therapeutic Value of Darts

In these very strange times, many of us are spending way too much time on screens and/or keyboards. I was starting to suffer headaches and a pain in the shoulder when a bright idea struck. I don’t get many so they are easy to recognise when they do turn up. Why not put up a dartboard?

It has worked wonders.
Every hour I go around the clock, which means I get a different length to focus on, a different action for my right arm and I acquire a useful (?) life skill.
And the pain in neck and shoulders has gone.
OK, so to start with it took me a significant part of the hour, but that’s improving…

For those of you tempted to do likewise the standard height from the floor to the bullseye on the dartboard is 5 feet 8 inches (1.73 m), while the oche (distance between the front of the board and the toeline) should measure 7 feet 9¼ inches (2.37 m). Just don’t put it on the back of a door which someone might walk through.
