Trying face tapping only once convinced me of its value. Although I’m a big user of extra virgin olive oil, the extra virgin coconut cold pressed oil works best when massaging the skin. It glides easier and smoother and leaves you with a moist rather than oily look when done.

Habit-Breaker Technique

I tried it; I do it every day now, sometimes several times while working long hours on the computer or when watching television.

Use it as a habit-breaker: Instead of reaching for a cigarette, jumping up to visit the refrigerator for the umpteenth time, pouring a glass of wine or beer that you really don’t want, but it’s there and you have the need to do something, anything, reach for the hairbrush and do yourself a favor.

Any size hairbrush will do. The tapping should produce a hollow sound. He’s right, don’t tap so hard that it makes you dizzy. Soft taps and then the same with the brushing back and forth.

I take it a step further and simply brush my whole head as a relaxer and an energizer after I do the Dr. Mandell Hairbrush Maneuver. It’s actually a scalp-brushing I’m doing. The hair is irrelevant, but it might do something good for the hair follicles.

If you don’t have any hair buy a soft bristle brush. You can use your fingers, but as a habit-breaker technique, it’s better to be holding something in your hand.

Listen While You Work


TIP > I like to watch videos, as I’m sure most of us do, otherwise there wouldn’t be a zillion of them produced on You Tube and other venues.

However, watching is time-consuming, so I go for the short clips. But with the talking videos it isn’t necessary to watch – generally speaking – so I open a window to the selected video, turn it on, then open another window and do some other work as I listen. Sure, I won’t hear it all, but when something catches my ear, all I do is click to the video window and pause, then go back and re-listen to what peaked my interest.

New Term: LISTENING VIDEOS is what I call them.
