  • No items needed

What You'll Do

  • Find somewhere to sit comfortably and close your eyes.
  • Don't mind the noise or the racing thoughts, and certainly don't expect the mind to slow down anytime soon.
  • Instead, allow your breathing (not your negative thoughts) to become the center of your attention.
  • Slowly begin to regulate your breath as your thoughts continue to race past.
  • Breathe in deeper and breathe out more fully.
  • If you can, pause at the bottom and top of your breath.
  • Continue for about 10 minutes.
  • Soon, your heartbeat will settle, and you'll feel more relaxed.
