Relieve Stress In Just 5 Minutes With This Unique Japanese Method

There are many causes of stress in modern life. Unless you live without a job and completely "off the grid," there is no way to escape the rat race for good. Luckily, traditional techniques can help us deal with our hectic day-to-day lives. In this post, we will learn how to harmonize the life energy in the body. 

First, you have to learn the states of mind represented by each finger. 

  • Your index finger controls fear. 
  • Your middle finger controls anger and resentment. 
  • Your ring finger controls sadness. Harmonization can also increase decisiveness. 
  • Your pinky controls self-esteem and dignity. Harmonization can increase your optimism and confidence. 
  • Finally, your thumb controls worry.

Take any one of your fingers (on either hand) and grasp it with the opposite hand, wrapping all of your fingers around it. You may feel a slight pulsing sensation. This is a sign that the harmonization is taking place. Hold each finger for one to two minutes. 

You can also press lightly into one of your palms with the opposite thumb. This will calm the mind, as the thumb represents worry.
