Simple Hand Exercises To Boost Energy And Balance Emotions

Simple Hand Exercises To Boost Energy And Balance Emotions

People from all walks of life experience stress, pain, and other negative forces that hinder productivity. Whether it’s the overwhelming demand of your job, the seemingly interminable problems in your home, or some personal failures we can’t recover from, these factors often have a large impact on our physical wellness.

When these negative situations put us down, it signals our whole body not to perform well. We become easily irritated and more vulnerable to making bad decisions. As a result, our overall functioning at work and at home is greatly affected.

How can I overcome my emotional issues?

Although stress-related incidents are unavoidable, it’s still crucial that we acknowledge our weaknesses. Taking the time and effort to actually give ourselves the break that we need from time to time can help us survive. Some people may choose to ignore this. But once you’ve learned to reward yourself with a few comforting gestures, you’ll know that the results can be gratifying.

The key is to adapt and let yourself take a break.

As we grow older, we naturally become susceptible to illnesses due to our drastically changing environments. Because of this, we push ourselves too much to work and make sure that everything is within our control. However, this kind of lifestyle doesn’t prove beneficial in the long run. As much as we want the power to keep things in order, life will always throw in something that surprises us.

Life is unpredictable, and that’s a fact. But bare in mind that although you may find yourself off-balance at some points, there are ways to keep focused.

Pamper yourself today, try something new!

With simple hand exercises, you can allow yourself to be relaxed, even after a long and hard day.

In Japan, an ancient form of hand gestures accompanied by deep breathing have done wonders for people who complain about stress and other emotional issues like depression.

The official term for this practice is “Jin Shin Jyutsu.” You can perform this type of touch therapy on yourself and on others. It is done to help balance one’s energy and emotions by simply stroking the meridians of the hands.

The steps to Jin Shin Jyutsu:

  1. Keep in mind that each of our fingers is connected to different organs in our bodies. Hence, they have corresponding emotions and attitudes which we exhibit in our daily lives.
  2. Hold the finger which correlates to the organ you want to heal or the emotion that you want to calm.
  3. Remember to hold this for three to five minutes while breathing deeply.
  4. If you wish, you can also do a complete body harmonization, should you decide to work on all of your ten fingers.

Below, you can read about each finger and its corresponding organs and emotions.

7 Signs of an Unhappy Relationship That Makes You Feel Stuck

7 Signs of an Unhappy Relationship That Makes You Feel Stuck

Relationships are complicated and when you’re unhappy, it can be difficult to tell what’s causing it and what needs to change.

Sometimes it’s as easy as opening up to your partner about your problems, while other times it may be necessary to switch partners or roll solo to get your mind straight.

When you’re in the thick of things, it can be difficult to tell if you’re unhappy in your relationship or just unhappy in general (in which case, a relationship may be just the cure you need).

Here’re signs of an unhappy relationship that is possibly making you feel stuck:

1. You’re depressed about your home life.

No matter what you do in life, you’re going to have good and bad days. Your relationship is no different.

However, no matter what you’re going through at home, you have to feel comfortable in your own home.

If you constantly dread going home because your significant other is there, there’s a problem. Maybe it’s something you already know about, everyone has an argument or just needs some alone time.

When that yearning to be alone becomes an insatiable obsession over the course of months and years, it’s time to realize you’re not the exception to the rule.

You’re unhappy in your relationship, and you need to take a look in the mirror and do whatever it takes to make yourself smile.

2. You aren’t comfortable being yourself.

Remember all those things you discovered about yourself when you first got together? The way your partner made you feel when you met that made you fall in love with him or her in the first place.

If they don’t make you feel that way anymore, it’s not the end of the world. If your partner makes you uncomfortable about being you, then her or she is only dragging you down. It’s up to you to decide how to handle that.

You need to be comfortable with who you are. This means being comfortable in your skin and with the way you walk, talk, look, breath, move, and all the other things that make you uniquely you.

If the person who supposedly loves you doesn’t make you feel good about yourself, know that you can do better. They’re not even one in a billion.

3. You can’t stop snooping.

Mutual trust is necessary in any relationship. The only way to get that trust is with respect.

I can find you anywhere online, no matter how private and secure you think you are. The odds of you having a password I can’t crack are slim. If we’ve met in person, I could install a remote key logger on your device without even touching it.

Finding your information online hardly takes a clandestine organization. Any idiot with a Wi-Fi-enabled device can cyberstalk you. I’m just the only idiot in the village admitting it.

So now that we know everyone snoops, it’s time to address your personal habits. Governments snoop because they don’t trust us. If you’re snooping on your partner, it’s because you don’t trust them.

It’s ok to have doubts, and it’s perfectly normal to look into anything that looks weird, but keep in mind that data collection is only half of an investigation.

If you find yourself constantly snooping and questioning everything, clearly there’s a trust issue and the relationship likely needs to end.

4. You’re afraid of commitment.

If you’ve been dating longer than a year and you aren’t engaged, it’s never going to happen.

Commitment is important. People will come up with a million ways to describe why they can’t be committed.

No matter who you are if you like it, you need to put a ring on it. Find an engagement ring, stick a gemstone in it and marry the person. If you’re not legally able to get married or you don’t believe in it for one reason or another, have a child (or adopt one, however you’re able to) or treat your partner’s family like your own. It’s a huge financial and mental commitment.

If you’re not ready for one or the other after some time, don’t waste anymore of your precious life on the relationship.

Your relationship should be something that propels you forward. If it’s not going anywhere, make it an open relationship and call it what it is—dating multiple people.

5. You imagine a happier life without your partner.

If all you’re doing is imagining a happier life without your partner, it’s a sign that you’re in the wrong relationship. You’re unhappy and you need to get out.

Your partner should be included in your dreams. There’s nothing wrong with wanting a future with someone.

Try to remember what you dreamed of before you got your heart broken by the realities of life, love and the pursuit of human success.

Remember when you would crush on that cute kid in class? You would secretly imagine marrying him or her and going on an adventure—that’s the way life should be.

If you’re not at least imagining adventures together, then why are you in that relationship?

6. You resent, rather than love your partner.

When a relationship starts to crumble, you begin to resent your partner for all the things you once loved about him or her.

When you’ve reached this point, your partner has reached at least No. 2 on this list. From your partner’s perspective, your unhappiness with them is picked up as bashing them for being who they are.

If you’re both unhappy in the relationship, it’s better if it ends as quickly and painlessly as possible.

7. You chase past feelings.

It’s okay to reminisce about the past, but if all you do is wish things were like they used to be, it’s a sign you’re not on the right path.

You’re unhappy and, at the very least, you need to have an open dialogue about it. This isn’t necessarily a sign that the relationship should end, but it definitely needs a spark.

When you talk to your partner candidly about what it is you’re looking for, you never know how they’ll react. The risk alone is worth it, good or bad.

Final thoughts

If you’re feeling stuck in your current relationship, it’s time to reflect about it with your partner. Don’t ignore these signs of an unhappy relationship as they will slowly go worse and harm both you and your partner in long-term.
