Anti-stress massage

   

 - Anti-stress massage
1-Sit up straight and breathe deeply several times.

2-Place the fingertips of your left hand just below your breastbone. This is your solar plexus, the point where a whole network of nerves meets. Hold the position while you breathe in and out 2 or 3 times to calm and relax your whole nervous system. Release and start again. Breathe slowly and calmly.

3-With light pressure from the fingers of your left hand, draw 10 small circles on your solar plexus in a clockwise direction.
