    To help relieve stress and negative thoughts, try this simple self-soothing method. It is believed that each finger represents an emotion.

    Thumb: Anxiety & worry

    First Finger: Fear

    Middle Finger: Anger & resentment

    Ring Finger: Depression & sadness. It is also responsible for better decision-making skills.

    Pinky: Self-esteem & stress. It also increases optimism and confidence.


    To balance Life Harmony, grasp each finger with the opposite whole hand. Hold it for 1-2 minutes. You will know it is working when you feel a pulsing sensation. 

    To calm your whole mind, press your thumb into the center of the opposite hand for at least 1 minute.

    Holly demonstrates these simple steps in the video below.
