The Last Stretch

Good day to my fellow PPers.

First post for the day.

Hope everyone is fine today. February 25 today and here in Manila, we are celebrating the 29th year anniversary of the EDSA Revolution. It was a big deal back then but through the years, our nation did not learn anything and it feels that we are worse off than 1986. Anyway, nowadays, mention EDSA and the only thing that comes to mind is the perpetual traffic in the area. EDSA is also the longest stretch of highway we have in Manila, a highway that turns into a massive parking lot during rush hours. Speaking of stretch, February 25 and we are three days away from a new month. The least stretch of the love month and I'm still single and loveless. I'll probably stay this way until March... 2020! LOL!

Anyway, this post being titled 'The Last Stretch', let me throw some wrist stretches knowing how everyone in the community types a lot.

Here you go folks...

Wrist Exercise 1:

Rest your forearm on a table or bench, your wrist and fingers dangling over the edge. Bend your wrist forwards and backwards until you feel a mild to moderate stretch pain-free. Then bend your wrist from side to side. Maintaining the same position, rotate your wrist with your palms open and then repeat again with your fist clenched.

Repeat each stretch, forward/backward, side to side, and rotations, ten times for each wrist.

Wrist Exercise 2:

Bring both palms together across your chest with your middle finger almost touching your chin. Keeping both palms together, bring both wrist downward across the chest towards your stomach. As you inch closer to your stomach, slowly separate palms but keep your fingers together. Hold the position as you feel a stretch in your fingers down to your wrist.

Repeat the exercise five times.

There you go. Hope that bit helps.

Not just the wrist but we need to exercise every part of our body that gets too much movement and that which does not get any movement at all. This is called physiotherapy. Everyone must do it and not just those who have had accidents.

Lol! I think traffic is the main concern of the whole nation. But what is the purpose of EDSA when there are celebrating for public views, but they have different greedy monster evil scheme in their hearts. I only do the wrist exercise from moving it circularly. Lol.
