May You Be Mindful – May 28 

The Ten Second Count 

This is more of an exercise in practicing concentration than it is in mindfulness. In this exercise, rather than focusing on your breath, you just close your eyes and focus your attention on slowly counting to ten. If your concentration wanders of, start back at number one!

“One…two…three…do I have to buy milk today or did John say he’d do it? Oh, whoops, I’m thinking.” 

“One…two…three…four…this isn’t so hard after all… Oh no….that’s a thought! Start again.” 

“One…two…three… now I’ve got it. I’m really concentrating now…”
