How to Meditate

HOW TO MEDITATE

Get comfortable. Turn off phones. Set a timer for 15 minutes. Close your eyes.

Breathe in slowly for 3 counts. Breathe out slowly for 5 counts. This is the rhythm of your breaths for the entire time. In for 3, out for 5.

Find a soft sound that's not too loud, so you have to focus (but softly, don't strain) to hear. I listen to a stream if I'm outside. Indoors, the hum of the AC, small portable fountain, a clock ticking, anything.

Thoughts will come. As they do, just let them float away as you gently re-focus on the sound and on counting your breaths. In for 3, out for 5.

It gets easier each time you do it.
