Today, use your breath as an anchor to cleanse away distracting thoughts and build concentration power.

The best time to start practicing mindfulness is at this moment. This moment offers all you need to connect and arrive to the here and now. Simply sit on your chair, or lay down on the floor or in your bed for a couple of minutes. Take a few deep breaths in and out, inhaling and exhaling slowly, gently. In your own time start shifting your attention to different parts of your body- as if you are doing a body scan. Stay with each body part as long as you like, experiencing its sensations without any judgment or need for control. Every time you notice that your mind is wandering, gently and non-judgmentally bring it back to your breath. It is quite simple to be mindful, all you need to do is keep focusing on your breath (yet it's not very easy).
