Not just for writers, but for anyone who spends a ridiculous amount of time sitting at a computer…
I’ve been having a few problems with my right arm since getting my new desk (it’s just that bit too high). I’ve been trying to switch my mouse to the left (so I can have problems with my left arm too!) (not really, it doesn’t seem to hurt that arm, for some reason), but I’ve also been trying to stretch more.
These stretches are so simple, but they really do seem to work – even stretching my arms out and turning them over makes a big difference. I just need to remember to do them every day, rather than when my shoulders are stuck up round my ears:
This one is brilliant both for sore computer arms and also what I call “iPad wrist” (just me?):
Now this one isn’t strictly related to being a writer (ahem), but I’ve done this Yoga for Hangovers video a few times and it always makes me feel better.
