To help keep up energy without reaching for a quick-fix, here are a few simple tricks to try:
- Tap your whole head with your fingertips to wake up your brain and motivate your body. Keep your fingers moving in a drumming action until you feel the effects. This can be particularly effective in areas where you may feel tension and may want to go a little more softly, with more of a massage, like around the back of the ears and base of the skull.
- Rub the roof of your mouth with your tongue; this might feel ticklish to start but this is a good sign that the nerves close to the brain are firing off. Keep going until the tickling feeling subsides.
- When you feel a craving, press the acupressure point in the middle of your breastbone with your thumb three times, and hold for 12 seconds each time. In traditional Chinese medicine this spot is called the Sea of Tranquility and said to quiet agitation and promote relaxation – worth a try!
