Thursday 8/2/18

Tight wrists, no problem! Our hands tend to stay in the same position while we type on a computer at work – fingers curled and wrists bending slightly. Try the Reverse Prayer Hands at your desk to loosen tight wrists.
1. Bring your hands to a prayer at your heart and rotate your pinkies towards one another. Place the backs of your hands together so all 5 fingernails touch. (If you’re kind of tight, getting the thumbs to touch might not happen).
2. Keeping the fingers together, lower the wrists until they’re at the same height as the elbows. If you start to come apart, raise your wrists where you can keep everything together.
3. Hold for 30-60 seconds. Then shake out your wrists.

Your hands will thank you for this break from the keyboard!
