In this article, you will read about an alternative Japanese method that will make you feel very relaxed, while taking only 5 minutes of your day.
Ancient Japanese used to believe that each finger of your hands is related to different emotions. The thumb is linked to anxiety and worrying, the index finger with fears, the middle finger with anger and bitterness, the ring finger with sorrow, depression and melancholy and the little finger with your self-esteem. So, exercising your fingers will help you overcome these emotions or help you in those areas.
The point of this exercise is to balance the opposing energy forces in your body. Grip a finger at a time with the following finger wrapped around it. Hold each finger for 1-2 fingers until the pulse is felt.
Pressing the central part of the palm with the thumb on the other hand will make your body fully relax. You should hold it for around 1 minute.
Watch the video below for more details. We recommend you practice it every day, and you will immediately feel more relaxed.
