Finger It!!!

One of the best ways to relieve stress is to use your fingers. Simple reflexology moves can lower heart rate and the stress hormone cortisol. But hey, you don't need to go to a spa to get a calming massage, you can do it on your own as long as you know where to press. Here are the top spots...

EAR LOBES - using your thumb and index finger, gently pull down and out along the edge of your lobe starting at mid-ear, working your way down to the bottom. According to the experts, each of our ears have 126 acupressure points and pressing the lobes activates many of them, releasing anxiety-reducing endorphines.

HANDS - When you are stressed and you feel a headache coming on, squeeze the groove between the thumb and index finger of your left hand with the thumb and index finger of your right hand for 1 minute; then switch hands and repeat.

FEET - Pressing down with your thumb where your heel ends and your arch begins for 60 seconds will relieve lower-back strain. Experts say, touching this spot, which marks the end of the sciatic nerve, helps ease related back and leg pain.
