Re­lax­ing for 10 min­utes in a rock­ing chair could help you feel 65% more peace­ful for two hours, sug­gests a study in Aging Clin­i­cal and Ex­per­i­men­tal Re­search. That’s be­cause rock­ing re­duces cor­ti­sol re­lease—and gen­tly sway­ing from side to side works if you don’t have a rock­ing chair!



Swiss re­searchers say rock­ing prompts elec­tri­cal im­pulses in the brain that help cut the fre­quency and length of ten­sion headaches by as much as 45% if you do it daily.
