How to

Stay still ignoring outside noises and thoughts. The monologue in your head will keep going, just don’t dwell on it. If it is too loud, just concentrate on your breathing; it will occupy your mind. Just enjoy being there with nothing to do and nowhere to go. Enjoy the peace. Your body and mind will thank you for it!

Note: Some sessions will be more successful than other. Practice makes perfect.
