Massage your ears. An ear massage is a fantastic way to release endorphins in your brain and make you feel less stressed. The beauty is that it only takes a couple minutes. Start by gently rubbing your earlobes with your thumb and index finger. Then squeeze the outer edges of your ears all the way to the top. These parts of your ears have tiny reflex points that can relax specific areas of your body. Finish by using your index fingers and middle fingers to massage behind the ears on the bony part of your skull.
