NavanPC HACK 024
A cheap and easy way to spare your wrists.
Catalog wrist rests are generally boring and expensive. But
that’s no reason to end your long day at the keyboard with
aching wrists. Stop off at a yard sale this weekend and head
straight for that ubiquitous dime bin of abandoned Beanie
Babies. They make great wrist rests. And you can swap them
in and out to suit your mood.
You can also fill a child-size sock with uncooked rice, tie it
off and pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Then use
the warm rice sock as a wrist rest to help soothe the joint.
