    “What do you secretly yearn for?” How can you bring some (some more) of this into your life - however little? 



    This is an oldie, but still a great question to ask yourself. Give it some thought then look for a meaningful goal or action and begin moving towards it. Fiona Crane




    questioningA few weeks ago, I met with an old friend to catch up over coffee. She had lost her job and despite plenty of interviews has been unable to find another.

    “What’s wrong with me?” she asked. “Why won’t someone offer me a job?”

    She wasn’t conscious of the questions she was asking. They just bubbled up, but they were good examples of bad questions.

    The questions we ask ourselves are powerful. They can fire hope and lead to new ideas. They can also destroy hope and keep us stuck in a bad mind set.

    The carpal tunnel is essentially an archway made of bone. When your palm is face up, the bony arch is upside down, with the top of the arch toward the back of your wrist. Across the bottom open end of the arch, a thickened band of connective tissue (the flexor retinaculum) crosses to close off the arch and create a "tunnel." This tunnel is the pathway for many of the tendons of the forearm flexor muscles (which control hand movement and grip) as they run down from their respective muscles in the forearm and into the fingers and palm. The median nerve also crosses the wrist through the carpal tunnel alongside the tendons.
