Only once you try to focus on a (.)
Focused on a point or breathing or even a train of thoughts. Your mind would feel confused and wandering away from what you were focused and concentrating about. So it’s a mind challenge that requires lots and lots of practice. And finally you only become a leader once you have fully learnt how to loose.

I usually feel frustrated at my thoughts desire to stray or let their straying become a frenzy. Simply counting and noticing this when it is necessary to focus is a more gentle guide towards discipline than scolding myself for a short attention span. Otherwise, I am grateful for a curious, active mind.

Focus ...
On two things at once! Palms of hands and Breath at the same time. I liked this meditation very much and want it to be a go-to for practicing focus.

very effective
I like the effect of concentrating on the breath and palms of your hands at the same time really quiets the mind

Although this wasn’t a sleep meditation, I used it before going to sleep as that is when my overthinking brain goes into overdrive and often I am unable to focus on what the sleep meditation is even saying. So this was simple yet giving effective tools to shift my focus and awareness and help to calm my overactive brain. It lets you know it’s ok for your mind to drift and yet brings you back with simple things to focus on as in counting your breaths backwards from 10 and focusing on how the palms of your hands feel. I imagine that should my overactive mind go into anxiety at waking moment’s that these techniques will be beneficial to calm and settle my mind also. So glad that I gave this a listen and until I have practiced enough to be making regular use of this alone, having the calming soothing voice of guidance will be a regular meditation I think.
