Join Henna Inam for an in-depth discussion in this video Practice: Improve focus, part of Mindfulness Practices.
- This practice is to help you grow … your capacity to focus your attention. … Find a quiet space. … Shut off any distractions. … Sit comfortably, relaxing your shoulders, … your feet on the floor. … Close your eyes or soften your gaze. … Inhale through your nose. … Start to become aware of the feeling … of your breath as it goes in. … Exhale through your mouth. … Now start to deepen your breath. … Put your hand on your belly. … As you breathe in, feel the belly rise. … As you breathe out, feel the belly fall. … We will breathe in and out on a count of four. … Let's start. … Inhale, two, three, four. … Exhale, two, three, four. … In, two, three, four. … Out, two, three, four. … In, two, three, four. … Out, two, three, four. … Continue to breathe, … paying attention to the feeling of your breath. … You can quietly note in your mind in and out. … If you're like most of us, … you will soon find your mind wandering. … Thoughts will pop up. … Perhaps it's what you need to do next. … Something that happened yesterday. …
