How long should you hold each finger?

If you have time, hold all ten fingers, one at a time. Hold each finger until you feel a pulse in that finger. If you find the finger is already pulsing strongly when you first touch it, hold that finger until the pulse calms down. Another way to hold all ten fingers is simply hold each finger for two or more breaths. This is a great practice to do throughout the day. It can be very meditative and relaxing. You also use this as you fall asleep. You can also just hold one finger to support the attitude of that finger along with its other benefits.
