If you feel achy when the days get shorter, and the temperatures start to drop, you’ve got a lot of company. The reason? Because our body’s production of mood-boosting and painkilling endorphins drops as we head from Fall into Winter – when our pituitary kind of goes into hibernation.
But studies show acupressure can boost endorphin production. The trick: Firmly massage the outside edge of your ears from the tops, to the lobes, for one minute… And it’ll soothe your aches and pains for at least an hour.
