How to Complete a Vagus Nerve Reset for Anxiety – When you are feeling an anxious you can lay down with your hands behind your head and look straight at the ceiling. Without moving your head having your eyes move all the way to the right as far as they can and hold for 30 seconds. Look back to the ceiling and then take your eyes all the way to the left and hold for 30 seconds. Your eye muscles may shake a little or have a difficult time holding but do the best you can. With your hands you can feel a muscular movement on the base of your skull each time you move your eyes to the left or right. This movement helps to reset the Vagus nerve. If you’re in a meeting and can’t lay on the floor, simply close your eyes for a moment, keep your head straight and move the eyes to the left and right while they are closed.
