It comes from Bob Roth, one of the most experienced and sought-after meditation teachers in North America.
Here’s what to do:
Place 3 fingers of your left hand on your right wrist and find your pulse.
Then, let both hands rest in your lap.
Close your eyes.
Focus on the feeling of your pulse.
Allow your thoughts to come and go, not focusing or dwelling on them.
After a minute, you’ll feel more relaxed – and you’ll be less likely to reach for food to self-medicate your stress.
