A Simple Exercise Will Reboot Your Brain In 30 Seconds

It’s Monday and you’re already exhausted. An out of whack pituitary gland, which releases
necessary hormones to your body may be to blame. Believe it or not, you can give your pituitary
gland and brain a re-boot just by pressing your thumb. Don’t believe me? Just watch! Don’t forget to click the subscribe button

fatigued lately and don’t know why? Perhaps it’s time to give your brain a reboot! You can give yourself this sort of “energy
jolt” right at home using just your fingers. Seriously! Try this pressure point exercise, and see
if you feel any different! Here’s how you do it: Take the thumb of one hand, and stick it up
like you’re giving a thumbs up. With the thumb and index finger of your other
hand, squeeze the tip of the aforementioned thumb over and over again. Do this squeezing in an on-and-off motion
for about 20 seconds. Feel anything? If you feel your nasal passages opening a
bit, you’re hitting the pituitary gland, which is located right above your sinuses. You may feel your nose clearing and be able
to breathe a bit clearer. Ah, feels good, doesn’t it? OK, now try the same squeezing motion on the
sides of the same thumb (on either side of the nail). Hold this squeeze for 30–60 seconds without
letting go. While you may be feeling differences in your
nasal passages, you may also experience a slight surge of energy or even clarity of
mind. If you don’t feel anything at all while
trying this pressure point exercise, don’t feel discouraged! This is normal too. Try the squeezing motion again later on or
the next day. After doing this a few times, your body will
get the signal, and you’ll feel a difference. In addition to feeling fatigued or foggy in
the head, everyday life can also leave you feeling under-stimulated and bored. If you’re craving a jolt of energy or the
feeling of being “high,” you don’t need to turn to alcohol or dangerous narcotics. You can get feelings of happiness and euphoria
using pressure point practices! First of all, do you know the scientific reason
behind the feeling of being high? If you’ve ever taken medicine, you may have
felt foggy, drowsy, or even high. This is because the medicine was reacting
with your brain’s neurotransmitter receptors. Uh, what the heck are those? Neurotransmitter receptors sense any chemicals
you put into your body (like medicine), and they tell your body what to feel. But instead of turning to meds or recreational
drugs, you can make your brain tell your body to have feelings of euphoria and happiness
thanks to reflexology! Here’s a great exercise to help put you
in a happier mood: This one uses the thumb’s pressure point
as well because the tip of the thumb is connected with the brain and head. Take the middle finger, ring finger, and pinkie
of one hand, and tuck them into your palm, leaving your thumb and pointer finger extended
— similar to a hand motion of a pointed gun. “Hey, don’t shoot!” Take your thumb, and sit it right down on
the top part of your folded middle finger. It should look like you’re pointing at someone. Now take the thumbnail of the opposite hand
and place it right onto the nail of the thumb you’re currently pressing down. Nail to nail. Quickly rub the nails together to stimulate
them. After doing that for a few seconds, push them
together firmly for 20 seconds. After that, you should start to feel a bit
of pressure behind your eyes as well as a relaxed sense of euphoria. This feeling is your brain winding down. Don’t feel anything? Keep doing this for another 20–60 seconds. Feel anything now? Congrats! You’ve successfully psycho-activated your
brain! Pretty awesome, right? OK, so you’ve given your brain a reboot,
but how does this work? By working the pressure points on your thumbs,
you’re activating your pituitary gland. This gland is located in your head right behind
your sinuses. The pituitary gland is incredibly small — about
.03 oz. That’s about as big as a kidney bean. But don’t let that teeny tiny size fool
you! The pituitary gland controls a lot of things
in your body. This gland releases most of the hormones in
your body, which is why it’s often referred to as the “master gland.” Hormones tell your body how to function; without
them, your body wouldn’t know what to do! They tell certain organs how to work, they
dictate how things like your hair should grow, and much, much more. Impressive! Since your pituitary gland releases hormones
that control many of your organ functions, if there’s anything dysfunctional about
it, things can really go awry — particularly when it comes to glands like the thyroid. Your thyroid gland secretes hormones that
regulate body processes: your metabolic rate, digestive function, muscle control, brain
development, and even your mood, to name a few. If your thyroid gland doesn’t work the way
it’s supposed to, you can feel fatigued, lethargic, and can gain weight. Of course, this all depends on the individual,
their genetic makeup, and the world around them. Curious about other pressure points you can
find in your hands? I don’t blame you! In addition to the tips of your thumbs, there
are pressure points in the tips of all of your fingers. On both hands, the pointer finger, middle
finger, ring finger, and pinkie are all connected to the brain, head, and sinuses. The lower halves of the ring and pinkie fingers
are pressure points for your ears; the lower halves of the pointer and middle fingers are
connected to your eyes. Who would have thought your hands were so
powerful? Next time you’re sitting at your desk, trying
to get out of the infamous 4 p.m. brain haze, try activating these pressure points to see
if you can feel your brain getting a serious reboot! Using reflexology is a great natural alternative
to drugs, and it’s super easy to do. But the best part? It’s totally free! While activating pressure points on your hands
is fairly easy, it’s important to be in tune with your body and not do anything you’re
uncomfortable with or that causes you pain. If while doing any of the exercises mentioned
in this video you felt pain of any kind, stop doing them immediately. If you’re simply more comfortable having
someone else activate these pressure points for you, pay a visit to a certified reflexologist
— they’ll do the work for you! Did you feel an immediate reaction when you
pressed on your thumb’s pressure point? Share your experience with us in the comments! Don’t forget to give this video a like,
