Mindfulness

5 Sep

While meditating, there three very important points  to remember: 1) Focus attention on the breathe or mantra. 2) When attention strays, notice and gently refocus without self- blame about your mind having wandered.  3) Be non-judgmental about what you are thinking when your mind strays, just observe it and let it go.
