Did you know that simply blowing on your thumb can help you through some really tough times?! Our thumbs have a direct impact on what’s called the vagus nerve. This is a pair of nerves running from the brain and splitting down to all the major organs and tissues, including the nose, mouth, throat, lungs, heart, intestines, and many others. So when you blow on your thumb, you’re giving additional stimulation to your vagus nerve, which can kick-start a whole bunch of useful processes throughout your body.
According to Dr. Arun Ghosh, a general practitioner from Spire Liverpool Hospital, our thumbs have their own pulse. So when you blow on them, you regulate your heart rate and lower your blood pressure, which helps you calm down and de-stress. This trick is also really useful whenever you’re experiencing major anxiety.
