Having trouble sleeping? Here’s a one-minute meditation exercise from eastern medicine expert Lara Ann Reggio that’ll help you drop off quickly:
First: Lie on your back, and put one hand under your head, just along the ridge at the base of your skull.
Then, place your other hand flat across your forehead…
Close your eyes and relax.
And hold that position until you feel your pulse sync up between both hands.
That sends a signal to your nervous system to bring more oxygenated blood to your brain, which can help you relax enough so you can curl up and drift off to sleep.
