We're all probably washing our hands more thoroughly and more often than we have been used to. Our hands may be getting a bit dry and sore. We may also be carrying a little anxiety associated with this.
Here is a video for Hand Care: https://youtu.be/Cey_mfKBAEw
Take a few minutes to relax and give your hands and yourself a little appreciative workout.
In this second video for caring for your hands: https://youtu.be/qiU7V1HlKoQ
Sit comfortably in a chair and use this simple 3-minute workout for your hands. Gently clapping to stimulate the many acupressure points in your hands which will give your whole body a work out.
Relax, enjoy and see how you feel afterwards.
If you'd like to do some more relaxing exercises, why not join Sandra, our complementary therapist with some gentle meditation: https://youtu.be/UpJjmNQs1u0
