Take a moment right now to give this method a try. You can set a 60 second timer on your phone or take note of the current time on your watch. For the next 60 seconds your task is to focus all of your attention on your breathing. Even though, it’s just for one minute, it can seem like an eternity, especially in the beginning. Leave your eyes open and breathe normally. Be ready to catch your mind from wandering off (because it will) and return your attention to your breath whenever it does so. Take pressure off yourself by realizing that you can’t fail at this exercise, you can only experience it.
