Work It Girl: One-Arm Assisted Wrist Stretch

The easy wrist stretch feels so good if your hands get sore from typing all day, and here's another stretch to add to your routine. Since you're focusing on each wrist individually, you can get a more intense stretch and it feels lovely.

For instructions on this stretch,

.

  • Sit nice and tall in your seat, with your feet flat on the floor. Extend your right arm straight out in front of your right shoulder. Turn your fingers down so your palm is facing away from you. Use your left hand to gently pull your fingers toward you. Stay here for at least five breaths, pressing hard enough to feel a good stretch, but making sure you're not feeling any pain.
  • Then let go of your right hand and turn your fingers up. Place your left hand on your right fingers and gently press your fingers toward you and hold for five deep breaths. Then release and repeat these two stretches with the left arm.
  • Repeat both stretches for a total of two times on each arm, and then shake out your hands to release your wrists.

You can take these stretches beyond your work life and into your workout. They're great to do after push-ups and planks.
