Am I hurting my head?

When I am editing footage in my computer, I constantly have to check the results on tv by using my XL1s to connect the computer to the tv. As I do this my camera sits on the tripod next to me because there isn't much room on my desk. I have a 3063 Bogen head on which the camera sits. So far all of my video equipment is only 3 weeks old and the camera has spent most of the time on the tripod and head....so I am wondering if the sustained weight from the camera will take away from the performance of the head somewhere down the line.

Thanks?

It's also good practice to lock the head in a level position when you store a tripod in a tube or bag.
