    Staying Focus When You Have Free Time at Home

    Counting Meditation

    How to do it!
    Sit or lie on your back and count slowly in your mind from 100 to 1; counting backward requires more concentration and will help you stay more focused. Try not to think about other things and just stay with the numbers. If you lose your count, start again from 100. If you reached 1, stay in silence for a few more moments.

    This is a great exercise for developing concentration, and if you can focus enough just to reach 1 without getting distracted, you will have a beautiful and very relaxing inward experience. Try and see for yourself!
