Article 1

Everywhere we go, we are breathing. No matter what we are doing or feeling, we always have our breath to connect us to the present moment . Although breathing itself is one of the most natural automatic things that we do, it is not always easy to focus our attention on it as our minds bend to get distracted with other things. As you do the following breath practice, try to greet the comings and gonigs of your mind as both natural and inevitable . The important thing is to recognise when your attention has wandered and to gently bring it back to the breath.

If possible , allow yourself fifteen minutes or longer for this practice. You can choose to sit on a chair or cushion on the ground . If you choose a chair , place your feet flat on the floor with your legs uncrossed.Sit up straight but not rigidly , ensuring that your spine is self-supporting and not slouding against the back of the chair . If you choose a cushion , sit cross-legged with your buttocks raised by the cushion and your knees at a lower level touching the floor. This will reduce the strain on your back. This posture will feel open , upright and dignified , supportive of mindfulness practice.
