Jon Kabat-Zinn “Full Catastrophe Living”; One Way of Practicing Mindfulness

“One involves the formal discipline of making a specific time in which you stop all activity, assume a special posture, and dwell for some time in moment to moment awareness of the inbreath and the outbreath. By practicing this way regularly, you naturally deepen your ability to keep your attention on the breath for a sustained period of time. This will improve your ability to concentrate in general, as the mind becomes more focused and calmer, less reactive both to its own thoughts and to outside pressures. As you continue practicing, the calmness that comes with just your breathing over a period of time develops a stability of its own and becomes more robust and dependable.”
