You will love this trick for cutting your risk of heart disease and depression, and it can even help you lose weight:
Take 2 minutes twice a day to massage your scalp! According to the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, scalp massages stimulate acupressure points linked to our adrenal glands……
Those are the glands that pump out the stress hormone cortisol and adrenaline. And two daily 2-minute head massages, for 2 weeks, can cut stress hormone production by 33% or more. So do one scalp massage when you’re getting ready for the day – like, in the shower while you’re washing your hair……and try another before bed.
You’ll reduce the production of stress hormones long-term and it’ll help you relax. That, in turn, will lower your risk of heart disease and depression – and less cortisol means your body won’t hold onto excess fat. Just remember: two 2-minute head massages a day for 2 weeks.
