To help prevent or offset discomfort in your hands and wrists, which could lead to problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome, try this exercise at your desk. Stand and hold your arms out straight in front of you, palms toward the floor, and clench your fists strongly. Move your arms outward toward each side and rotate your clenched fists outward, so that your thumbs are pointing toward the floor and your biceps are pointing toward the ceiling.  Hold this posture with fists clenched and rotated, then release. Repeat twice. Unclench your fists and give your hands a good shake to get the blood flowing in them once more.
