“Mudra” is a Sanskrit term, meaning a ritual or symbolic gesture. Most mudras are done using the hands and fingers. For example, a common mudra in yoga practice is the Anjali Mudra—palms together at the heart. But there exists over a hundred mudras, each with different intentions and uses.
One mudra that is particularly useful during times of stress is the Mudra of the Three Secrets, or Tse Mudra. The Tse Mudra is an ancient mudra practiced by Taoist monks and is known as the mudra to combat anxiety and depression.
The Mudra of the Three Secrets aims to alleviate feelings of stress, chase away sadness, and help one overcome fears. It is also said to attract good fortune and mental clarity.
To create the mudra you press your thumb into the palm and wrap your other fingers over it. It will look like a fist with the thumb tucked away inside.
