If you experience anxiety, you may want to try out this easy technique that only requires your hands and can be done anytime, anywhere! TikTok user @bradhelps shares a helpful tip to help ease feelings of anxiety.

There’s a nerve in our finger known as the panic reset button. If you press this specific spot, it may help reduce your anxiety! This nerve is connected to the heart and Brad claims that when pressure is applied, you will feel it start to work almost instantly. This special spot on your finger is located just below the third knuckle. Using your thumb, apply medium pressure to this soft, fleshy spot. You know it’s working when you start to feel a little tingle in your hand.

According to neuroscientist Sonia Sequeira, PhD, “this spot touches a point . . . that correlates to a nerve that runs from the chest to the tip of the middle finger. The meridian is related to your heart area. When you apply pressure to that point it helps to regulate blood pressure and reduce anxiety.”
