Being a writer means spending lots of time working on a computer, which can result in some serious hand and wrist pain. How often do you need to stop typing to massage a cramp out of your hand or wrists? Some of the best ways to mitigate damage to your hands and wrists is to practice proper posture by keeping your wrists straight while working, switching to your non-dominant hand when using a mouse to give your other hand a break, and investing in more ergonomic accessories. Try snagging a trackball mouse or even a vertical mouse that lets you rest your hand more naturally while you use it. If you are experiencing pain then it’s best to start icing your wrists and hands for 10-15 minutes and then taking the ice off for 15 minutes. Repeat this twice an hour. Another great solution is to start doing certain exercises like swimming or yoga. Both can do wonders for the joints in your wrists. If you really want to take a break from typing then you should consider looking into dictation software that will allow you to simply speak and have the words appear on the computer screen.
