More than half of the world’s population lives in urban areas. But researchers say that people living in urban areas have to cope with more stress and have higher levels of mood disorders and psychotic illnesses such as Schizophrenia and Alzheimer. The reason might be the busy and hectic lifestyle in cities.

People who live in the country are happier, according to the Daily Mail. Many reports have proved that the greenery and lesser crowd of villages reduces stress but with several cases of farmers committing suicide reported in newspapers we can easily assume the stress they go through in case of failure in loan repayment or dowry system or many other possible reasons.

The reason of stress in city people may be the social aspects of urban living — the stress of living and dealing with lots of people, and feeling more anxiety, fear and threat as a result. The other urban factors like pollution or noise makes the condition worse. Although, the city dwellers would never face the same stress that people in rural areas do.

Here is an exercise which can be performed by only using your own two hands and it can evaporate all your tiredness, stress and anxiety in less than 5 minutes.

By simply massaging a point between your eyebrows on the forehead can help you release stress as soon as possible

What you need to do is – find the ledge between your eyebrows on the forehead.

Then, massage this point for 45 seconds.

Stimulating this point by simply pressing and massaging it improves circulation, reduces muscle tension, and stimulates brain chemicals known as endorphins. Apart from just relieving stress, calming your mind, reducing headaches, chronic fatigue, insomnia, and eye pressure, this massage is very effective at alleviating pain in the sinuses and clearing nasal congestion. This massage will help you relieve headaches, stress, and other causes of interrupted sleep.

Hackers have stolen crypto tokens worth $120 million from Blockchain-based decentralised finance (DeFi) platform BadgerDAO.

Hackers have stolen crypto tokens worth $120 million from Blockchain-based decentralised finance (DeFi) platform BadgerDAO. Several crypto wallets were drained before the platform could stop the cyber attack. In a tweet, Badger said it has received reports of unauthorised withdrawals of user funds. "As Badger engineers investigate this, all smart contracts have been paused to prevent further withdrawals. Our investigation is ongoing and we will release further information as soon as possible," the company said late on Thursday.

According to the blockchain security and data analytics Peckshield, the various tokens stolen in the attack are worth about $120 million, reports The Verge. According to reports, someone inserted a malicious script in the user interface (UI) of their website. Badger has retained data forensics experts Chainalysis to explore the full scale of the incident and authorities in both the US and Canada have been informed. "Badger is cooperating fully with external investigations as well as proceeding with its own," it said. DeFi is a collective term for financial products and services that are open, decentralised and accessible to anyone. DeFi products open up financial services to anyone with an internet connection and they are largely owned and maintained by their users. While the attack didn't reveal specific flaws within Blockchain tech itself, it managed to exploit the older "web 2.0" technology that most users need to use to perform transactions, according to reports.
