Headache comes unannounced and causes a lot of trouble. Like any other disease, there are pills which can cure. But what happens when we don’t have pills?
Should we keep on tolerating the pain? Well, there’s no need to worry about that. There is a mind blowing alternative to pills that works in seconds and can be done anytime, anywhere!
A headache can be cured in 5 minutes by a massage called Acupressure based on 2000 years old China remedy. It’s proven scientifically and works effectively.
For Acupressure, you don’t need to have knowledge of medicinal science. There’s no need for a professional to give you the massage, either. You can give it yourself only if you know how to do it.
On average, the massage takes 30 seconds to 1 minute. In order to give yourself the message, you need to take a comfortable position and relax.
Here are the 6 points you need to know and massage:
(1) Yintang Point:
The point of the third eye is called the Yintang point. It is located in between our eyebrows and connects the nose to the forehead. The fatigue of the eyes is removed by massaging this point. It is effective for eye-related headaches, whether from eye strain or simply a “behind the eyes” headache.
(2) Zan Zhu Points:
The Zan Zhu points are symmetrical points. They are located on the medial end of the eyebrows and are the local points for both headaches and sinus. You need to massage these points for a minute.
The Yingxiang points are situated on both sides of our nostrils and useful in opening our sinuses. If a line is drawn from them to our eyes, it will pass through our eyes. Massage these points well and get relieved from toothache and stress.
(4) Tian Zhu Points:
Tian Zhu points are present at the back of our heads. They are positioned between the ear and the spine. You need to massage these points if you want to get relief from a headache, nasal congestion, ear and eye pain, and migraines.
(5) Shuai Gu Points:
You will find the Shuai Gu points in between the hairline and the area of the temple. Massaging this area cures the pain in that region. It also helps in relaxation of eyes and cure eye pain.
(6) He Gu Points:
He Gu points are symmetrical points which are positioned in between the thumb and the forefinger. If you massage these points, you will not only get cured of a headache but also enjoy the removal of stress from your nerves. It is also effective for relieving headache, back pain, toothache, and neck muscle tension.
Now you can throw away those pills and cure your headache on your own. Acupressure works like magic! However, do visit a doctor to rule out any serious underlying issue. Also, try to work with a licensed acupuncturist for effective results.
Too often people confuse someone who is shy with someone who is an introvert. This post has compiled signs of an introvert personality to help you.
While shy people find it difficult to open up to other people, introverts, on the other hand, choose to stay away from people. They’re not scared or easily embarrassed — as is sometimes thought, but prefer being with their near and dear ones and talking only to a select few.
Here are thirteen signs to tell if you’re an introvert even though you don’t feel like one
1. Small talk drains you
Introverts don’t hate talking, but they do hate conversation that feels purposeless. Introverts are happy to skip the surface stuff like where you’re from and get to the real meat of things like discussions about which book character would win in a battle.
2. You avoid the crowds.
You don’t like being a part of a huge crowd or a social gathering. You avoid parties because they’re packed with people you don’t know. You easily get annoyed with such places because you think they stress you out.
3. You’re pretty much bored never
If you can’t remember the last time you were legitimately bored, chances are, you’re probably an introvert. You don’t need other people to have fun, you always can think of something great to do because you find a good company in yourself. Even if you’re doing absolutely nothing, your mind is always busy thinking thoughts.
4. You aren’t too keen on meeting new people.
You’re not very excited to meet new people. In a social gathering, you don’t make an effort to talk to or know someone else better. You aren’t rude or shy, but you just don’t see the necessity of striking a conversation with new people.
5. You love your alone time.
You love to spend time by yourself. You don’t get bored, as you’re always up to something fun and exciting (for you, at least). You focus on your interests and hobbies much more than spending time with people and visiting new places.
6. You prefer deeper relationships to superficial ones.
You believe in building deeper relationships with a select few rather than trying to make many acquaintances. You feel like interacting with smaller groups fosters a more meaningful relationship.
7. You’re better at writing than speaking
It’s easier for you to convey your thoughts and feelings when you can write them down rather than when you have to speak them out loud. What happened to the art of letter writing anyways?
8. You don’t trust easily
It can be hard for introverts to find someone who will respect their introverted nature, and so it takes more time for them to open up. On the other hand, it means that your friends will be people you can really count on.
9. You’re also social sometimes.
When it comes to being around friends, you are social and talkative. Also, when you’re in your interest groups or among people who share similar interests, you’re quite chatty, to the extent that others could think you’re an extrovert.
10. You enjoy listening to people talk.
You’re a good listener, and you enjoy having conversations with people. You don’t shy away from giving your opinion. But, you do, however, like to move away from the center stage and prefer to shift the focus onto the other person
Find out whether you and your partner share a healthy and fulfilling relationship or not with this happy relationship quiz.
Regardless of how long intimate partners have been together, they can always benefit from talking over how they currently feel about each other and their relationship.
Setting aside time to do a regular check-in can forestall potential problems and create proactive solutions.
There are many ways for a committed couple to evaluate how they’re doing, but there are seven dimensions of an intimate relationship that are both easy to recognize and to use as a starting point.
They are not meant to replace the areas that may be more unique to a particular relationship, but they can serve as a good beginning to your inquiry.
The seven dimensions are presented below. After reading the following descriptions of each of them, take the simple test after each one to see how you’re both doing in that area.
Have your partner do the same, and then compare your answers and see how your close your scores are to each other.
Whether your scores are the same or different, you can use that information to learn more about how each of you views your relationship, and what thoughts and feelings may be behind those evaluations.
You can compare your current scores with how they may have been when you first fell in love, and also use them to determine if you’d like to make changes in the future, and in which of the seven areas you would need to address.
Here Is The Happy Relationship Quiz
Answer the questions at the end of each dimension section according to this guide:
Never – 0
Rarely – 1
Sometimes – 2
Often – 3
Regularly – 4
A score of 15 to 20 means your relationship is thriving in that dimension.
A score of 10 to 15 means you should reevaluate your relationship and work on enhancing that part of your life together.
A score of fewer than 10 means you need to challenge where you are in that part of your relationship and how you can heal that rift.
Dimension Number One – Playing Together
There is no better way to evaluate a relationship than to ask the partners when they remember laughing hard together.
Humor and playfulness are part of every healthy relationship and are plentiful at the beginning of most. Whether playtime is spontaneous or planned, it is better if it is regenerating, light-hearted, and fun.
Playtime means that you are both doing something you mutually love to do at times when you both want to do it. It also requires that you are not carrying the past or future worries and that you set your burdensome responsibilities aside.
When partners play well together, they feel more light-hearted and closer. It is the way couples become magical children for each other in those moments where time doesn’t matter.

5) Do you find yourselves amused in the same situations? ____

Dimension Number Two – Sharing Dreams
Throughout a relationship, you and your partner should be able to explore what you feel about things that you feel are not part of your everyday lives.
That can be as simple as talking about movies and books and imagining yourselves in those roles. Or, you can dream about what you might do if sudden good luck were to fall upon you.
More concrete ideas, such as where you might travel to or even where you will live when you’re older, are ways you can explore possible dreams together.
Investigating those possibilities can take you to more new imagined adventures, like talking about what you would like to change about yourself, or what you’d love to learn.
These special shared thoughts, even if they seem out of the realm of current possibilities, will expand your knowledge of each other’s inner worlds.
New couples often talk about dreams because their relationship is ahead of them. More established couples tend to forget to open each other up to new possibilities.
They do have the positive edge of memories and can use them to create new dreams for the future.
Whatever route is chosen, the partners in thriving relationships feel open to sharing whatever they might dream of without fear of invalidation.
1) How often can you and your partner share abstract thoughts and fantasies? ____
2) Do you feel that your partner is interested in your dreams? ____
3) Can you welcome each other’s philosophical and emotional thoughts? ____
4) Do you allow each other to explore possible dreams without shutting them down? ____
5) Do you feel free to share whatever is on your wishlist? ____
