Take it slow
Especially for beginners, it’s not advisable to stay more than 20-30 min right away. Start slow to allow you to become familiar with the controls and the sensation of being in VR.
As you gain confidence and adapt to the VR environment, you can gradually spent more time in VR.
Start with shorter sessions and gradually build up as you become more comfortable. This approach helps your brain adapt to VR. Avoiding discomfort during initial extended sessions leads to better experiences in subsequent ones.
As you progress, always prioritize your well-being and take breaks as needed to ensure the best VR experience.
During the VR session

Don’t forget to take regular breaks if you have plan a long session, especially for beginners. During these breaks : rest your eyes, stretch, and hydrate, especially during prolonged sessions.
During the session one of our best advice is to breathe deeply and steadily, especially if you feel a little bit anxious at the start. It will help you to relax and ground yourself.
Exiting the Virtual World
Carefully Remove Equipment: Close your eyes and unstrap and set aside the VR headset gently, checking for any cables or obstructions.
Gradual Transition: Open you eyes and allow yourself a few minutes to adjust back to reality, rather than abruptly shutting off the VR system.
Physical Movement: After a VR session, stretch and move around to relieve any stiffness and to reacclimate yourself to the real environment.
