• Counting The Breaths: A Mindful Meditation

    Take a letting go breath, a big sigh of relief.

    Now shift to BELLY BREATHING.

    On the next outbreath, Mentally concentrate on the number FOUR.

    The next outbreath, three, then two, and one on successive outbreaths.

    Start counting down from four again and continue for five minutes.

    Whenever thoughts come to mind, just notice them and let them go as soon as possible, returning your attention to breathing and counting.

    REPEAT this exercise two to three times a day.
