How to Sit in Meditation – Open Your Hips!

  • Posture for Oral Medication: A recent study suggests that lying on your right side after taking a pill may be most effective for faster absorption ([JHU Hub, the best way to take a pill]). This is because the medication lands in the deepest part of your stomach and dissolves quicker. Sitting upright or lying on your left side may slow down this process.
  • Follow Medication Instructions: This is the most important factor. The medication label or your doctor’s instructions will typically tell you if you should take the medication with or without food, and if there’s a recommended posture (like sitting upright for some medications). Always prioritize these specific instructions.
  • Overall Comfort: If you have trouble staying on your right side, prioritize comfort. Absorption will still happen, and it’s more important to take your medication consistently than to worry about perfect positioning.

If you have any questions about how to take a specific medication, consult your doctor or pharmacist. They can advise you on the best approach for maximum effectiveness.
