How to Avoid Wrist Strain 

 

Running a subscription website requires a lot of time in front of the keyboard. It is important that you concentrate on your posture, wrists and hands to prevent repetitive strain injury.

Here are a few tips to keep your wrists fit and healthy:

  • When typing, keep your wrists straight and in line with your forearms

  • Ensure that your forearms are parallel with the floor

  • Keep your palms facing down

  • Use a keyboard pad for wrist support. Make sure you don't have clutter in front of your keyboard creating an uneven surface

  • Relax your hands when you pause; wriggle and stretch your fingers

  • Squeeze a stress ball

  • Take short breaks often

If you follow this advice, your wrists and arms should remain in good shape.
