Sleep Better After Massaging Earlobes


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Become more relaxed and drift off to sleep easier by massaging your earlobes for 30 seconds. According to Chinese hospital studies, women who do this before bed experience less anxiety and fall asleep faster. The earlobes contain powerful qi(chi) points that activate energy centers throughout the body.

    That mad me think of the movie Runaway Bride when Julia Roberts' character was waiting to get married and very antsy. Her friends were trying to come up with suggestions to help her calm down. The one friend said to rub her ears. She tried it and said "that feels good, where'd you learn that?". Her friend said she didn't know, that's what she does to her dog. lol.

It sounds like a good idea, tho. May help get my mind off things as my brain tend to wander and think about a lot of things before sleep.
