YOUR FINGERS DO THE TALKING, AND SAY A LOT ABOUT YOUR PERSONALITY!
Body-language expert Naomi Tickle reveals the secrets to overcoming any challenge.
” If your thumb reaches the first knuckle of your index finger — You’re emotional and prone to passionate outbursts. You should: Soothe jangled nerves by swiveling your torso from side to side 10 times. The twisting action loosens muscles from the shoulders down the length of the spine for total relaxation.
” If your thumb doesn’t reach your first knuckle of your index finger — You hold in your feelings, which can leave you frustrated. You should: Ease pent-up tension by balling your hands into fists, scrunching your toes and making a “sour lemon” face. Hold for five seconds. By exaggerating muscle tension, you achieve a deep state of serenity when you finally release the pose.
” If your ring finger is longer than your index finger — You make hasty decisions you later regret. You should: Find inner calm by visualizing a column of light starting below your navel, extending up through your body’s core. Take five deep breaths as you focus on the light beam. Concentrating on this physical axis literally centers you.
” If your ring finger is shorter than your index finger — You hesitate before making decisions. You should: Crank up confidence by standing with your arms out to your sides. Bring hands together in front of you as if clapping slowly. This regulates activity between both sides of the brain to promote clear thinking.
