Using quiet counting can be really helpful to keep the mind on the breath, and gain the calming, soothing effect of staying with the breath. Counting gives the mind a bit more to do so it makes it a bit easier - and it doesn't matter a bit if you only get to 2, just start again!

I was having a rough day, a kind of speedy day and for it all to come to a rest with this is just amazing. I needed this

Counting breath
I always find this helpful to keep my mind busy counting instead of thinking.

Counting the Breath
I discovered that counting the breath is actually distracting for me. I become much calmer and centered by simply focusing on my breathing.

Breath as an anchor
Felt very grounded after breathing and counting my breaths. Great that I can use this throughout the day too

Totally lost it in the twenties!
Got really distracted this morning, and lost focus completely. Guess I shouldn't try to use Aura WITHOUT my earbuds!🤦‍♂️

Getting better
At first, I felt like her voice was kinda too fast for me but this feeling got away. I really liked the counting at the end of every exhale, it helped me to stay focused on each and every breath, so that my mind won’t wander.

After this short meditation I felt somehow relieved.
I learned that a shift of attention can lead to a reduction of negative thoughts and worries.

Slowing down
I learned that in order to really relax you need to slow down and not go so fast through your life or you might miss something
