Ear reflexology, the practice of stimulating those pressure points on the ear that are believed to correspond to various parts of the body (foot, bladder, even your trachea), also can work to reduce negative emotions (rejection, self-pity, even “bearing the burden of the world”).

Interestingly, people also reported having higher happiness levels not just by increasing the frequency two to three times a week, but also when they believed they were getting more than their peers.
