Hey Stampers....take a break!
So, how 'bout we avoid injury and physical therapy and take breaks and do stretches instead. Grandma says the key to avoiding injury is to keep the circulation flowing by breaking at least every 10 minutes and stretching your hands, fingers and even shoulders. We all know this already, right? But do we do it??? A very simple exercise is to regularly sit up straight and stretch your arms above your head, rotate your wrists around a few times and then bring your arms back down to your sides. In class, I stop my students and have them do "the wave". That gets them stretching and giggling at the same time.
I am a fan of this gal's office chair Yoga YouTube vids. This is a great one for the wrists.
Enjoy your break and happy stretching!
