Mark Manson on Meditation
How to meditate
- Find a comfortable place to sit or recline.
- You may want to use a cushion or blanket to support your back. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths, letting your body relax.
- Focus your attention on your breath. Make note of the sensation of the air moving in and out of your lungs. If your mind begins to wander, simply redirect your attention back to your breath.
- Continue focusing on your breath for as long as you like. When you're ready, slowly open your eyes and return to your surroundings.
