A lot of our tiredness is due to the overload of our minds. It takes a lot of energy to worry, to ruminate, to let the mind go wild in random thoughts. Awareness of breath is a skillful meditation that will give your mind a rest. Using the breath as an anchor regularly throughout the day will help to rejuvenate, to bring clarity and calm.
Found it hard to sit still and concentrate on my breathing. So many times I caught myself in a variety of thoughts. I do better when I do night time meditations laying in bed.
I learned that sometimes you just need to focus on your breathing and let your mind wander
I learned that I do have the ability to meditate & the practice isn’t as strenuous as I once thought
I felt more calm and i almost fell asleep.
Just taking a few minutes to realized who your body feels can clam you very fast or at least for me.
Coming Back to my Body
i felt that when i focused on my breath, my body felt more like a home and less like a shell. it allowed me to get out of my over analyzing mind and focus on the present moment.

Minding the breath
Breathing in, belly rises.
Breathing out, belly falls.
If my mind wanders, it’s OK; that’s what the mind does.
A very nice, simple meditation for focusing on the breath. Thank you. 🙏🌷
Lost in the moment 😌
What ever I thought about I can’t remember, I just got lost in the moment. Paying attention to my breathing, belly rising and falling. I’m now totally relaxed. 🙏
I had a really hard time focusing on my breath. Hard time focusing to this session period. Ziggy & Sprocket didn’t want me to meditate today, so they kept climbing all over me. Annoying!
I have to do this one again...alone...in my closet...
It seemed like it would be relaxing. My two friends enjoyed this session very much, so I have to try it again.
I really liked the simplicity and the caring (bienveillance) that I felt in this meditation. It made me feel good. Thank you! 😊
Awareness of breath
I noticed that simple awareness of the body helps me feel what is right with me rather than focusing on a mood.
I felt the awareness of my present moment and my breathe. These were calming.
I love how much silence the longer version of this meditation has. It allows one to sit with their breath in a quiet space, reflecting on the in breath and the out breath.
Tired? - focus on breathing
That was excellent!! I noticed a lightness in mind as I began focusing on my breath and let all the other thoughts go. I will definitely remember this the next time I’m feeling tired!!
What a great meditation to awaken to this morning thank you💗
Just completed this (shorter version) this morning before my yoga.
I had a long mountain bike ride yesterday and woke feeling so tired and sore but this has quickly boosted me to help with my yoga practice 🥰
