Stop Stressing: 3 Fast Ways to Chill Out


We're happy to present this article from one of our favorite sites, Real Beauty.

If your schedule has been anything like ours, you're on accelerated deadlines at work so you can take that much-needed vacation. Before you go into panic mode and binge eat on sugar cookies or french fries, take a short moment to physically help yourself relax. Corporate employee-turned-masseur Leonardo Ranieri devotes his career to providing body rubs in the office place with his company Massage At Work. (Note: We've tried a massage with him, and it's absolutely mind-numbing.) But if you can't make it to the spa, try targeting the three pressure points below.

Sweet cheeks: Place your fingers on the tops of your cheeks and rub in small circles for one minute. This helps to increase your breathing since the respiratory system is located there. The more you inhale and exhale, the less anxious you'll feel.

Nose around: The groove at your nostril is a strong acupuncture point that you can tap into by taking two fingers and pressing into the outer nostrils to open your sinuses. This also aids breathing.

Use your head: Take those same two fingers and massage each of your temples simultaneously to bring oxygenated blood to your brain. This also alleviates headaches.
