Once every hour, remove your hands from the keyboard, make
a clenched fist as tight as you can and move them in a circular motion. While making these motions, count to 15 then move these circle fists in a counter-clockwise motion. This was help take pressure off of your wrists and give your fingers a break. This particular stretch is important to combat carpal tunnel syndrome, a hand condition which affects many Canadians each year.
Another great stretch that could strengthen your calf muscles and improve circulation are calf stretches. While you’re in your office chair, place both feet on the ground, lift your feet up using your toes, then put them down again. Do this stretching exercise just 10 times each hour and those calf muscles will get stronger over time.
