As a Mother, I feel fearful for my child’s safety! Even though my children are grown adults! I wonder if they are being careful enough, social distancing at all times, wearing their masks, washing their hands and keeping each other and their children safe.

How Flexible Are You When Your Fist Is Clenched?

When our hands are relaxed and open, they can move fluidly, resiliently, from task to task—grasping items, reaching out to assist or hug someone, transferring easily from a writing to a driving position.
