Connecting with our breath, listening to our heartbeat, and paying attention to how we feel in our body when we are alone is the perfect place to learn how to slow down. This mediation will teach you to control your reactions to any situation and can bring sweetness and one-pointedness to the most outrageously scattered mind. This is important because when we are tired, we are more easily triggered or react faster to things that we wouldn't have exhausted.
Practice it in the morning, before bedtime, in the shower, or on the subway. Practice it all day, every day if you can.
Music: Be silent with your breath.
Time: Practice this meditation for 3, 11, or 31 minutes.

I hope this finds you well, and you give yourself this gift.
