Counting Breath

Meditation class today involved counting breath.  Counting breath is a wonderful meditation to try if you are new to meditation, you have anger issues or anxiety or your thoughts race through the brain like a fast train.

Begin by breathing deeply in through the nose, then exhaling through the mouth a couple of times.
You count your breath silently in increments of ten, setting a timer for 10 or 15 minutes.
Close your eyes, inhale 1, exhale 1
inhale 2, exhale 2
inhale 3, exhale 3
inhale 4, exhale 4
inhale 5, exhale 5
inhale 6, exhale 6
inhale 7, exhale 7
inhale 8, exhale 8
inhale 9, exhale 9
inhale 10, exhale 10

slow even breaths, see how it works for you!
