Not to mention the daily chores we need to do,driving, eating, cooking, writing, serving, lifting up baby to change nappy,etc,...Oh, the list is endless. A soothing manicure once a fortnight can do wonders as also hand moisturizers used daily after your chores. But any small pain due to a cut, a burn or bruise or due to illness such as arthritis and of course, aging, can immobilise us to some extent. And a fracture to the hands or wrist can be doubly painful. It is therefore necessary to take care of our hands and fingers on a daily basis. The more you use your hands the more flexible they are.

      Ethel,typing on the computer keyboard only exercises the fingers. It does give you a simple workout, but we need to extend to the palms and wrists as well.
