Today is a really busy day, so was yesterday, so I’m going to keep this short today (I’ve already done a post this morning letting you know about our Foggy Frog Thunderclap). Today’s post is a follow up from last week’s meditation post . Yesterday I had the second meditation class.
The key thing I learnt about meditation last night, is one of the simple breathing techniques used in meditation. Unfortunately brain fog means I can’t remember the name of it, but I can remember how to do it.
Steps for breathing techniques:
After making yourself comfortable, settle in and focus on your breathing.
Focus on breathing in for 4 breaths and out for 4 breaths.
After you’ve got your breath consistently in and out for the count of 4, start to add a break in between the in and out breath. Begin with a break for a count of 2 and increase to a level you are comfortable (up to a break for a count of 4).
Give it a try, it definitely helps me to focus my mind more and relax properly. 🙂
What techniques do you use to help you focus and relax?
