In uncertain times, anxiety levels can be slightly higher than normal.  Maybe this is just the time to treat yourself to a bit of pampering. The winter can be harsh on our hands, so this is a good moment to give them a little extra TLC.  Healthline.com provides a handy list of remedies for dry hands.  

If you are ready for a relaxation treatment, a hand massage is one option that you could try.  As well as being nice and relaxing, research shows that hand massages may help with some hand conditions, including arthritis and neuropathy.

You won’t need special equipment for this, maybe just some lotion or massage oil if you like.  If you have any pain in your hands, it might be best to check with the doctor first before getting started.

For a guide on how to give yourself a hand massage, and for more details of the benefits, visit the Healthline website.

How can I help someone to do this?

If you know someone who could benefit from a hand massage, or one of the dry hand remedies, you could give them a call and talk through the benefits.  If they don’t have access to the internet, you could print off the information and post it to them.
