Step 4 Use the Breath to Relax

Count the Breaths without Distraction

Counting breaths without distraction acts as discipline by holding the mind to a certain pattern.

Count in breath an out breath as one – and so on from one to ten.

Most folks would say, “No problem. Watch: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten.” Like that. I can count to ten. But can you count to ten while you breathe and only count?

  •  Count breathing  in and out as one.
  • Beginning: Keep your mind on the breath and count to 10 breaths.
  • Advanced: Keep your mind on the breath and count to 21 breaths.
