Mindful has a basic meditation to aim for mindfulness. They describe mindfulness as “the act of bringing attention to one’s breath and then back when our attention has wandered, to develop a healthier relationship with ourselves”.

Set aside five minutes for the following (longer if you want):

  1. Get comfortable and prepare to sit still for a few minutes. Focus on your own natural inhaling and exhaling of breath.
  2. Focus on your breath. Where do you feel your breath most? In your belly? In your nose? Try to keep your attention on your inhale and exhale.
  3. Follow your breath for two minutes. Take a deep inhale, expanding your belly, and then exhale slowly, elongating the out-breath as your belly contracts.

Did you experience random thoughts as you practiced breathing? That’s totally natural. Keep practicing and it will get easier to focus on your breath and let go of distractions; the more often you practice (even for 5-10 minutes/day), the more calm you will feel.
