Step 8. Follow the breath. When you feel relaxed, it is time to distract your left brain. The goal is to think of nothing. Focus on your normal breathing -- in and out. Follow it with your imagination as it goes in through the nose, curling into the lungs, and back out. Keep stillness. Try to do nothing but follow the breathing. Counting in and out is fine. Breathe normally. Do this for around ten to twenty minutes. If you are like most people, you follow your breath a few times, and then suddenly realize that your mind has drifted back to some everyday thought. Don't fret. Just smile and refocus on your breath. Get stillness back. Taking quiet time works in ways we don't need to understand, so just enjoy this wonderful personal time.
