Exercise to Relieve Stress When Typing

Can you recommend any exercise to help relieve stress when doing a typing practice?

Hi Yara,

Exercise #1 – Stretch Your Feet. To stretch your feet, simply lift them off the ground, then point your toes and hold that position for a few seconds. Then flex your feet up and hold. Repeat. You can also move your feet around in a circular direction with toes pointed, and then reverse direction.

Exercise #2 – Stretch Your Hands. Finger stretches are easy to do. Simply spread apart the fingers in each hand as far as you can without causing pain and hold for a few seconds. You can even move each of your fingers around as you do this. You can also extend your hands as far out to the sides as you can and then up over your head. Hand and wrist massages will help circulation and alleviate stiffness.

Hi Yara,

Here are a few more exercises you can try.

  • Grab a towel and scrunch it up with your right hand. Relax. Do this 10 times and then switch hands.
  • Finger massage!
  • Put your hands on the table and lift each finger, one at a time. Repeat 5 times on each hand.
  • Touch thumb to pinky 5 times on each hand.
  • Touch each finger to the thumb. Repeat 5 times on each hand.

I hope these help!
