Close your eyes and observe the breath as it enters and leaves your nostrils.
Do this daily for 5–10 minutes and you will start to feel a sense of calm wash over your thinking patterns.
Most people get distracted when they meditate and this troubles them. With a mindfulness practice we are simply observing. We generally do this with the breath. Choosing to focus on the entrance to the nostrils gives us a location in which to place our awareness.
Gently, and with acceptance, bring your mind back to the entrance to the nostrils each time it wanders. It takes time and practice to retrain the mind. And it is not a linear process so you will find that some days are easier than others.
This simple practice will very gradually bring order to the chaos of your mind.
