Set a timer for 5 minutes so you can relax and not worry about the time. Then take a moment to find a comfortable and quiet place to sit. Rest your arms and hands wherever they feel comfortable.
Next, try to become as relaxed as you can. Focus on your breath and tune in and be aware of your body. Use all your senses and be aware of the sensations and experiences you’re having right now. Whatever you are thinking, there is no wrong or right thought. Just try to watch it without judging and feel the natural rhythm and flow of your body and breath.

Let your breathing be natural and don’t try to force it. Let your body do what it’s naturally able to.
