Posted Feb 03 2009 12:20am

When you work full time, especially if it means chronic pain in your arms and hands, every part of life can start to feel overwhelming — the last thing you want to do is wade through a bunch of old blog entries to find the easy ways to make things better.

So here is a list of articles on the easiest changes you can make to your lifestyle, to make your world a little more ergonomic and prevent arm pain:

  1.">Make dish washing part of your daily routine

  2.">Carry over-the-shoulder cloth grocery bags to the store

  3.">Make your office feel homey and healthy

  4.">Choose the right ergonomic kitchen, garden and other tools around the house
  5. Give yourself a massage with hand-held tools, instead of using your own knuckles
  6. Find fun ways to stay in shape
  7. Express yourself artistically
  8. Find stretches you can do at your desk

  9.">Use rest-break software to remind you to take breaks at the computer

  10.">Use ice massage for quick treatments after work

Bonus! — Number 11 — Subscribe to this blog to get reminders and suggestions for treating your repetitive stress injuries.
