Would sitting down arm exercises be ok? (they're not for me, but I have different issues)

I hit my exercise buttons with relatively mindless tasks that require mild physical movement and give a sense of achievement: household chores (sorting the laundry while sitting on the floor, for example) and computer games, especially Guitar Hero and RPGs that involve running around exploring and killing things. They might not work with dizziness though I guess :/ Simple drawing exercises (figure studies etc) are useful too, or actual art if I'm feeling up to it but there's the danger of getting depressed about how terrible it is (you can't do practice wrong :))

I've also been doing mindfulness meditation when I feel really jittery and too tired to do anything about it. If you google Jon Kabat-Zinn there's some free videos showing the basic idea and I've been working through the audio book of "Full Catastrophe Living".

When I really can't do anything I try and find somewhere to sit with a nice interesting view.
