To meditate, find a quiet space where you will not be interrupted. Put a few cushions on a carpeted floor, or sit on a firm chair. Sit with your back straight. Keep your eyes open, lightly focused and looking downward to an area about three feet in front of you. Place your hands in your lap. Rest your tongue on the front of the roof of your mouth. Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Try not to squirm.
To begin, breathe in deeply and breathe out slowly. Do that three of four times, then begin counting your breaths from one to ten.
When your thoughts carry you away from your breaths, return to your breath and start counting again at one.
If the sky opens up in front of you, return to your breath, and start counting again at one.
Try meditating twice a day for 15-20 minutes at a time.
