Hi. My name is Heather. I’m a Crackberry Addict. Well, not really. I have a Droid X that’s my addiction, but I steal my brother’s iPhone when he’s around. So I spend a lot of time huddled over a tiny keyboard, thumbing and poking at tiny keys and touch keyboards.
As do a lot of my clients. Maybe even YOU!
Smartphones are incredible tools, but they weren’t designed for long term use, and I know some of you spend a LOT of time thumbing away on the Crackberry. So, for a just a minute: PUT THE CRACKBERRY DOWN AND STEP AWAY FROM THE DEVICE.
Unless of course that’s how you’re viewing this. In that case, set it on a surface so you can see the following video (Part 1 of 2) that demonstrates stretches to help with the tight hands, wrists, forearms and achy shoulders of all those hours poking away at the keyboard letter by letter.
If you want to be able to continue to rely on your Smartphone, you’ve got to keep your hands and arms in shape. More stretches for the hand later this week so stay tuned. Next week I might put together self massage for the hand! (Useful for lots of time cooking for Thanksgiving, too.)
