This exercise will benefit your whole body; leaving you feeling refreshed and will enhance clarity of mind. Every technique, which helps to relax the mind and quieten the rush of thoughts, will lead to increased levels of happiness. Developing concentration by engagement in meditation is a means towards this goal.
Find a quiet, comfortable place, where you won’t be distracted. Sit with your back straight. Place your hands in a comfortable position. Allow your eyes to rest looking comfortably downward, gazing softly but not focused on anything. Let your breathing become deep and rhythmic. It’s okay to let your attention drift, but stay relaxed. If your eyes become heavy, let them close. Don’t worry about doing ‘it’ right. You simply want to clear your head, and relax. When the ability to have a quiet mind under all circumstances is gained, one enjoys constant happiness, no matter what you are doing or where you are.
