Due to my medical constraints (medications, etc), I opted for a low intensity experiment. I decided to add drinking warm milk with nutmeg before bed and a daily external oleation routine. Near the end of the experiment I took up trying meditation with a mantra.
1 – a half hour before I intended to go to bed I would warm up my milk, turn off all electronics and read or just sit with it for a while, then get ready for bed.
2 – right before bed, I would oil my feet with sesame oil and sleep with that on (with socks, of course)
3 – every day before my shower I practiced an external oleation with sesame oil all over my body. Since the time is there for me right now, I tried to really make this a treat and not to just slather the oil on, but to really enjoy it.
4 – Attempt at meditation with the gayatri mantra (ongoing)
