Today's quick exercise can be done at your desk or anywhere, while you're working, reading, talking on the phone, grabbing a snack, waiting for the elevator, or doing just about anything. If you're feeling the tension after a week of keyboard work, this will give you a much-deserved break.

Wrist stretches can prevent injury
If you have concerns about straining your wrists, getting carpal tunnel syndrome, or facing other nasty wrist issues due to keeping your hands glued to a keyboard all day, you'll appreciate learning that there are some exercises you can do that help prevent all of these issues. Start with a warm up to loosen your wrists (steps 1 and 2), then do some stretches.
  1. Raise your hands to chest height.
  2. Shake your hands like you're trying to shake off something sticky that won't let go.
  3. Separate and straighten your fingers until the tension of a stretch is felt. Hold for 10 seconds.
  4. Relax, then bend fingers at the knuckles and hold 10 seconds.
  5. Interlace your fingers in front of you.
  6. Rotate your hands and wrists clockwise 10 times.
  7. Repeat the rotation counterclockwise 10 times.
