Ergonomics is one of the first things users address when confronted with a RSI such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. It is really important to setup your computer workstation properly. Improperly setup computer desks cause extra strain on your hands, wrists, back, and body. Even the most ergonomic setup is not going to prevent overuse, but it is a small step in the right direction.
I have found that driving exacerbates my RSI or carpal tunnel syndrome. It is pretty logical as driving involves use of the hands. I have tried to minimize my driving by getting others to drive, walking, or taking public transportation. Try not standing and holding on while on the bus or subway as this will cause the same problems.
