By doing so this motion generates heat at a pressure point responsible for vitality and energy – then repeat with the other foot. This Chinese acupressure massage has been used for over 4000 years.

Friday: Contact Close Friends
What gives you a purpose in life is staying in touch with friends and family.
It makes you accountable to others and vice versa. On a side issue, if you are a heavy drinker or have an addiction – you will lose your purpose in life that much quicker therefore having a strong social network reduces the negativity and stress.
In certain cases, close friends will help remove 90% of the aging effects after a major life event, such as a a major break up, or divorce or a death.
Always make plans and stick to them. Share how your day’s been with those close to you even if you are single and schedule phone calls or skype your friends abroad. Try and stay off the booze or keep it to socializing as being true to yourself, you will be true to others.
Saturday, Step 1: Have Sex!
Safe, monogamous sex helps to reduce pain and stress, and improves immunity and burns off some calories.
A Queens University study found that men who had sex 3 times a week reduced their risk of having a heart attack by half, and nearly the same percentage was reached for women. Sex also helps with sleep which leads us to Step 2.
Saturday, Step 2: Get More Sleep
Sleep is the most important anti-aging secret.
People who sleep less than 6 hours a night have an increased risk of stroke and a heart attack. You will also crave more sugar.
The ideal amount of sleep: 7.5 to 8 hours a night. This is important as it’s the end of the sleep cycle that certain regenerative hormones are released.
