    Had a safety speaker come through work a while ago and show us all about spine safety. Which actually gave me a fair bit of insight into some stuff my doctors have been struggling with.

    She then indoctrinated a smaller group of 'leaders' - people spread through the office who a couple of times a day, lead their work areas in stretches.

    20 software developers and enterprise IT operations guys doing pelvic circles and quad stretches does BEG to be youtube'd - but for all that it feels (and looks) a bit silly - it's done wonders for my general flexibility and reducing pain in my wrists.

    The humble mouse is the cause of the most wrist strain. I was suffering from sore wrists but then I changed to using a Wacom graphics tablet. It takes a couple of days to get used to but you never go back to only using a mouse. It is a much more natural position to use, does not strain your wrists at all and is more accurate to boot.
