Finger and Wrist StretchesImage Source: Paleohacks.com If you are typing or writing most of the day, you might find that your hands, fingers, and wrists carry most of your tension. Adding finger and wrist stretches to your desk yoga is a great way to relieve that extra tension. Simply raise your hands above your head and, while keeping your arms straight, draw slow circles with your wrists. Next, open your fingers wide, and then close them into a tight fist. Shake your arms out and hold them straight in front of you with the palms facing downward. Using your other hand, pull back on your palms to apply counter-pressure to your forearms. Don’t forget to breathe slowly and deeply throughout your stretching for maximum stress relief. This series of desk yoga stretches can be done multiple times throughout the day.
