We use our hands all day every day, from the time we wake up until we go to bed at night. Most of us are concerned with keeping them clean moisturized and our nails cut, but how often do we take the time to care for the muscles, joints, and tendons we often over use on a regular basis.

The muscles in your hands can become tight, like any other muscles that get over worked, tendons can become tight on one side and overstretched on the other due to constant repetitive motions, and joints may become swollen for various reasons. Taking a few minutes a couple of times a day, to stretch and exercise can help to keep you hands feeling up to all you need them to do  for you each day.

This week the, Tip of the Day, will focus on stretches and exercises you can do for your hands and wrists. Also I added a few tips to help you pamper them.

If you are having regular pain or discomfort in your hands or wrists, consult a medical professional before trying these or any other exercises or activities.
