This 2 Minute Foot Massage Will Help You Sleep Better

Welcome back, viewers! Sleeping has slowly become a luxury rather
than a necessity. This is because of our modern lifestyle, where
screen time and caffeine dominates our daily routine. That doesn’t mean there is no solution. There is a 2-minute foot massage that can
be really helpful in getting you good night’s sleep. In this video, we are going to discuss it. Let’s start with some basics. What is this 2-minute foot massage? One foot contains about 26 bones and more
than 7000 nerve endings. These nerve endings are linked to several
other parts of the body. Massaging on a certain part of the foot or
a toe could help stimulate the organ it is linked to. This is the idea behind a 2-minute foot massage. Of course, this means that there are particular
nerve endings that can stimulate sleep. These areas are your big toes, foot pad, the
middle and the center. These parts are linked to the brain. Massaging them releases hormones that boost
sleep. How does that work? Well to understand it, we need to take a look
at them one by one… #1 The Big Toe You need to massage your big toe with your
fingers in a circular motion. After that, proceed to do the same thing with
your thumb. Doing this on a regular basis will help to
stimulate the pineal gland. In case you are wondering, the pineal is a
gland that is located in your brain. The purpose of this gland is to release hormones,
including dopamine. The pineal gland releases a hormone named
melatonin. This elevates our feeling of falling asleep. Thereby creating the urge to sleep, helping
us improve our sleep cycle. A healthy sleep cycle is very important. Lack of sleep isn’t something that you should
be taken lightly. Even in our video, “7 Reasons You Are Always
Tired” we have spoken about the lack of sleep and mismanaged sleep cycles. If you haven’t checked it out yet, we would
suggest that you do. Coming back to this video, we will now talk
about… #2 The Footpads Your foot pads are more sensitive than you
think. Unlike your big toes, foot pads are linked
to the pituitary gland. As we have already stated, pineal glands elevate
your urge to sleep by releasing melatonin in your brain. While these hormones are being released, they
need to be controlled. That is where pituitary gland comes to the
rescue. By controlling the hormone secretion, the
pituitary gland helps to make sure that too much hormone doesn’t get released inside your
body. For this to work, you need to massage that
part of your foot properly. In order to do that, just put some pressure
on your footpads with your fingers and your thumb. Either press the area or massage it. No matter how you do it, just make sure that
every part of your foot is getting massaged. This will help you feel more relaxed. As your brain would be too occupied with the
pleasure its enjoying. In case you feel that a massage is too complicated,
you can check out our video on bedtime habits. Unless you avoid it, certain bedtime habits
can cause insomnia and you don’t want that. #3 The Middle Of Your Foot The middle of your foot is linked to your
nervous system as well as some parts of your brain. Massaging that area can help elevate calmness
and relaxation. Thus creating a mindset necessary for sleeping. Similar to the two previous parts of your
foot, you need to massage in a sideaways or circular manner. You can also try and press that part for sometime. This needs to be repeated at least 3 times. You can even use oil while doing this. It will only enhance the feeling of relaxation. More importantly, the nerve endings of your
mid foot are linked to that of your shoulders and neck. So a massage in the middle of your foot will
also help release the tension in your neck and shoulders. Which will make you feel comfortable. When you feel more comfortable, it becomes
easier for you to sleep. Who knew we had so many pressure points? Wait, we aren’t done yet. #4 The Center Of Your Foot Unlike the previous ones, here you will have
to massage and then place pressure at the point for sometime. It increases the blood flow in your body,
which enables the oxygen to flow freely. It is also good for the red blood cells and
arteries. For this reason, you can massage the center
of your foot even if you aren’t looking to fall asleep. When the pressure points under the center
of your feet are touched, it makes you feel more peaceful. It reduces all the stress you may have faced
throughout the day. It also eases other problems like anxiety
and depression. This is even helpful if you have major mood
swing issues. Massaging this part of your foot can also
help you feel relaxed. Additionally, it can calm your breathing. So if you have a breathing problem then maybe
massaging this area could be helpful. Massaging your feet may seem like a good idea. Yet we must also remember that we live in
a busy world. Finding sufficient time to massage our toes
may not be easy for everyone. Especially on a regular basis. This is why we would like to introduce some
alternatives to the foot massage. #1 Try Footwear with Acupuncture Points There are tons of footwear available both
on and offline that have acupuncture points. These shoes perform the same function as the
massage. While they may not be as effective and accurate,
they are still decent options. These footwear have other benefits as well. For example, they can help with your blood
circulation and provide relief from headaches. They can also boost your body’s metabolism. If you are someone who may not have enough
time to try out a foot massage, we would suggest this option. #2 Try The Reflexology Therapy Reflexology refers to the treatment of pain
and other problems by using pressure points. Even the massage that we talked about in this
video falls under Reflexology. If done correctly, reflexology can help with
a lot of physical problems that we deal with regularly. If it’s hard to find time for that massage,
you can go for weekly or monthly therapy. There are many physiotherapy clinics that
may be able to help you with this problem. One session in a week or a month should help
you deal with your sleep. Just make sure that you don’t discontinue
after going for a few months. You can also watch our video, “How To Fall
Asleep In 5 Minutes With These Simple Techniques.” It will help you understand how to fall asleep
right after going to bed. #3 Try Yoga When nothing else works, Yoga might prove
to be helpful. It has been revered for centuries. There are various types that prove to be very
helpful especially the ones that focus on breathing exercises. They can help control your anxiety and feel
more relaxed. This in turn can help you get better sleep
at night. Although, we would suggest that you speak
to experts when it comes to yoga. Of course, Yoga isn’t the only ancient art
that can assist your sleep ability. #4 Tai Chi While most people try Tai Chi for its health
benefits, it has other benefits as well. Tai Chi can keep your blood pressure under
control. More importantly, it can calm your nerves
and create the mindset that is necessary for a good night’s sleep. Tai Chi is also known to be good for people
who have depression. If you happen to be one of them then maybe
you should try Tai Chi. Apart from that, Tai Chi relieves muscle tension. As I stated earlier, releasing muscle tension
will help you relax and eventually fall asleep. Tai Chi could do wonders for you. Just remember to consult an expert before
trying it. Just like Yoga, Tai Chi needs to be done correctly. You need to know the exercises before you
can practice them at home. Another thing to keep in mind for both Yoga
and Tai Chi is that you don’t need to do these exercises everyday. One session a week should be helpful enough
for you. So, have you tried the foot massage yet? Let us know in the comments below! We would love to hear from you.
