Description

Lie on the floor on your back with your legs straight and arms at your sides. Or sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor and hands on your desk or lap.

The palms of your hands are facing up and resting on the floor, desk or lap.

Close your eyes and breathe gently.

Focus on your breath and allow any thoughts or distractions to come to you and just let them go, refocusing on your breath.

Sometimes you might need a word to focus on, or a favorite place to imagine like lying or sitting on a beach. Imagine the warm sand, the hot sun and the cool breeze off the water. Your breath sounds like the waves! As you breathe in, listen! It sounds like the waves coming up to the shore. As you breathe out, imagine the waves going back out to sea. Keep breathing with the waves for another minute or two.
