The Mudras stimulate the energy flow in the body through the nadis (energy channels), as their terminal points are located in the fingers and feet. They help to create inner peace and strength, eliminate tiredness and anxiety, as well as improving physical and emotional health. Ideally, the mudras should be practiced with the legs crossed in a traditional meditation posture. However, they do not lose their efficacy if the person is walking with hands in pocket or lying down. Some sources suggest that they should be practiced for thirty minutes daily, while others recommend fifteen minutes, three times a day or until the health issue subsides.
