Diet charts, treadmills, aerobics…sometimes, it becomes a pain in the ass (and literally, in most parts of the body!) to lose weight, specially if you are a foodie and can’t control those fancy desires of eating a cheesecake and a chicken roll at random hours. Slowly and gradually, your whole workout routine turns into a nightmare. Enter: acupressure.

The good news is that apart from easing nausea, vomiting, lower back pain, and headaches, acupressure is also helpful in losing weight.

Turns out a simple technique of acupressure can help you control your appetite and hunger, while at the same time improving your digestion.

How, you ask?

Spare a few minutes from your pretending-to-be-busy schedule and place your thumb in front of the triangular shaped tissue near you ear. Now open and close your jaw and find a point where it has maximum movement. That is the most active point between your ear and your jaw. Now stop right there, press that point for at least a minute, and you’re done.
