Wasn't sure whether health and fitness or religion and spirituality would this topic fit better in.
I just remembered about Buddhism and meditating by only concentrating on the breath(Anapanasati.) Supposedly, what I am doing for my particular meditation is to concentrate my mind on one thing(and only one thing,) which is my breathing.
I tried it, and man was it hard to stop my thoughts from wandering off my breathing. Each time my mind would wander, I would force myself to go back to only concentrate on my breathing.
Whoever said doing one thing over and over again is a piece of cake, it isn't. There are just so many ways your mind can throw you off.
Has anyone ever tried some type of meditation? Did it work for your particular purpose?
