Hi Emma

Thanks for your fabulous article. I really appreciate the technical detail and research into how the brain works.

Regarding posture, I lie down and put both hands on my heart. For some reason, the hands on heart thing really adds a new level for me. Discovered it by chance. If I fall asleep, I just try again later.

I consider myself a relaxed (sloppy!) meditator, but I'm definitely committed to it. Twenty mins, twice a day.

I started in Feb 2014. Didn't think it would work so well. It's like free valium. Amazing bliss, not all the time, but very regular. Quite mind boggling esp after living with high anxiety for such a long time.

Take care ... I'll definitely look out for more of your articles.
