Focus briefly

Sit in front of an object, for example a burning candle or a picture. Now consciously focus only on this picture or candle flame. Breathe in and out and return your concentration to the object again and again. If thoughts and feelings arise, register them and keep returning to the object. Don’t be too hard on yourself if you don’t succeed. It is normal for thoughts to wander.
