If you are new to mindfulness adding counting the breaths can help to aid concentration. This meditation will help you to focus on one thing at a time and allow you to begin to feel a sense of calm. Please note: If you are struggling with your mental health it's really important to seek professional help. These meditations are not a substitute for that but can be used along side therapy to help to support you. For more on Carla-Jo and her work please see www.carlajo-mindfulness.com

Less stress
I learned that meditation is much more than just learning to relax. It鈥檚 a way to learn more about yourself mentally. My stress level has dropped tremendously since starting this and I鈥檝e learned that when stress does try to over take me just to close my eyes and sit in silence and listen to your breaths. It鈥檚 amazing the difference it makes.

Too fast
I felt that the breathing in this one was rushed for me and didn鈥檛 help much with my overthinking. But I learned that once I went at my own pace, it became a lot more enjoyable.

Too fast
Was not a big fan of this one. I felt rushed and found it hard to meditate.

Counting
I liked this meditation a lot. At first i felt rushed because it was not a normal pace for me. I decided to just breathe and count at my normal pace and rhythm. What a change! My mind kind of went blank except for counting. No distractions or intrusive thoughts, just counting and breathing. Very relaxing and another method to use to clear my brain of annoying crap. 馃檹鉂わ笍馃憤

Respiraci贸n
En esta ocasi贸n mi mente estaba en el ritmo de mi respiraci贸n. Lo segu铆 tan bien que no me di cuenta en qu茅 momento se termin贸 el audio. Creo que no siempre se puede hacer eso, tal vez sea el cansancio acumulado o las cosas que debo hacer, pero el focalizar mi atenci贸n a este acto puede en verdad resultar tanto divertido como inspirador.

Breath counting
I am finding that counting can help but, at times I lose track of my count. Instead of being frustrated I can be thankful that in that moment I was mindful. Just start over with the count brings be back gently.

Pacing myself
Counting breaths helps to keep a steady focus. Nothing replaces a lack of sleep, but it still gets me tuned up to start my day. Namaste

Breathing Meditation with Counting
This was a helpful a technique that kept me focused on my breath. However, I found my breathing rhythm to be slower than the counts offered and wondered if I am breathing too deeply when I meditate.
