When we meditate, we strengthen our focus, control anxiety, increase the memory of our brain, get stronger against pain, improve our physical and mental well-being. It is important to understand it is not about a process that magically wipe out stressful thoughts from your mind. The practice of meditation needs patience.
As full as your schedule is I’m sure you can find 10 minutes to meditate. Where are going to meditate doesn’t matter as long as it’s quiet and stay undisturbed.
Sit comfortably on a chair with your hands resting on your knees and your back straight.
Close your eyes and take 10 deep breaths. Inhale through the nose and exhale slowly from mouth. Due this process try to keep your attention only on your breaths. On the last exhalation allow your eyes to open.
Possibly you will notice that your mind wandering away from your breath sometimes. When this happens don’t judge yourself simply just return your attention to your breath.
Now take a moment and notice any sounds in the environment. Notice how your body feels right now. Notice your thoughts and emotions.
That’s it. How relaxed are you feeling right now? Remember not to get angry when you lost your attention. That’s the practice.
