Opening your meridians is a concept that comes from ancient China - part of Qigong - that will allow you to boost your alertness and focus levels while improving your blood circulation.
Let’s learn more about this technique.
How to Do It
All you need to do is to slap the different parts of your body lightly.
Just strong enough to cause a bit of pain and make your skin slightly red - because it means that blood is circulating and you’ll see it reflected in the way you feel: more alert, more focuses, and fully awake.
Do it for 5 minutes slapping the different parts of your body, especially the ones that feel dormant - for example your calves and your shoulders.
Opening your meridians will bring you clear and powerful benefits:
✔ You will feel more alert and focused

Three powerful reasons that will complement the rest of your morning habits.
