Palm-to-Palm Wrist Stretch
Here's another easy stretch to do at your desk. Take breaks throughout the day to practice this stretch, which will help you from getting carpal tunnel syndrome.
- Sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor. Bring the backs of your hands together in front of your chest, so your thumbs are pointing in. Press them together firmly, and lower your elbows slightly to increase the stretch. Hold for five deep breaths.
- Then turn your hands around so your palms are touching, with your thumbs pointing away from you. Press every fingertip and the base of your palms together firmly, again lowering your elbows slightly to increase the sensations. Stay for five deep breaths.
- Repeat these two stretches for a total of three times. Then shake out your hands to release your wrists.
