If you only have a few minutes, here's an easy one to do on your own. Give it a try to take a break from your hectic day.
Here’s how: Use counting to stay focused on the breath. After the out-breath you count one, then you breathe in and out and count two, and so on up to ten, and then you start again at one. That's it. Simple, right?
If you lose focus before ten, start over at one. Okay to close your eyes or slightly close your eyes as your gaze is slightly down and in front of you. Work up to five minutes of counting to ten.
Mindfulness of Breathing uses the breath as an object of concentration. By focusing on the breath you become aware of the mind’s tendency to jump from one thing to another. The simple discipline of concentration brings us back to the present moment and all the richness of experience that it contains. It is a way to develop mindfulness, a good antidote to restlessness and anxiety and a good way to relax.
Concentration on the breath has a positive effect on your entire physical and mental state.
