How can I remember the difference between "lay" and "laid"?

I often confuse *lay* and *laid*. For instance, in selecting the appropriate word in these contexts:> She lay/laid a hand on his arm. He lay/laid across the bench lazily. We lay/laid down our heavy load.Is there a common mnemonic for remembering which to use, and when?
