The body has many nerve endings that's useful for self-soothing like with our fingertips that can delicately and precisely feel things.
However, the need to touch our face comes with the reason of economic efficiency. We are able to get the quickest relief with the nerves that need stimulating through the face because the nerves there are extremely sensitive and close to the brain thus making the signals arrive quickly and robustly.
We favor the face due to its ample amount of nerves. It rewards us consistently and quickly.
Self-touching or also known as self-pacifying is something that we do both consciously and unconsciously. It's done because our brain requires us to do so.
Certain touches like the twirling of the hair or even just by touching your beard can contribute to psychological comfort. When done correctly it releases a bunch of chemicals that help us relieve stress, calm down, and put us in a good mood.
As infants we have in our DNA the moro reflex and the palmar grasp reflex. These are reflexes that develop while we were in the womb and lasts until we are at 3-6 months of age.
These reflexes are responses to our environment whether it may be through a loud sound which startle us or when an object is placed in our little infant palms.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
