Find a quite place that you feel comfortable being in, where you find the energy calming. Either sit on a chair with your back straight, or on a meditation bench, or cusion. Settle into a comfortable position with eyes closed and hands cupped together in your lap or relaxed on your legs. Notice your breathing without altering it; focus on it coming and going through your nostrils. Thoughts will arise; allow them to come and go without following them. When you find yourself lost in your thoughts, without following them. When you find yourself lost in your thoughts, without judgement or comment, return to focussing on your breadth. begin with ten minutes or so twice daily, preferably morning close to awakening and evening just prior to sleep. As you are more able to stay with the breath you, will begin to notice that you are becoming more a witness to your thoughts. And now, you can control and calm your thoughts too.
