Texting is your life, but relying on your thumbs to type out every single digital word kinda takes a toll. Here, a three-second trick that will help you fight “smartphone claw.”

What you do: Put down your phone. (We know it’s hard.) Then tap each finger to your thumb five times in a row on each hand. Do three sets of this movement.

Why this works: The minor stretch helps alleviate cramping by waking up your other fingers and helping your hand break free from its thumb-to-keyboard rut.

Now texting is easy peasy. Two (recharged) thumbs up for this trick.
