Breath meditation techniques for the noisy mind
I’ve been decreasing my medication and it’s been leading to some side effects, turbulence in the mind and body. So I’ve been trying some variations on my breath meditation to boost concentration in a “noisy environment”.
- deep breaths, concentrating on the nostrils, thinking “in” and “out”... this brings quite a high focus to the nostrils, but it can lead to a calm meditative state within about 10 minutes
- sucking air in and out through the mouth, concentrating on the breath in the mouth, thinking “in” and “out”... this also brings a high focus, is maybe even better for very noisy environments, can bring a calm meditative state within about 20 minutes
Just wanted to share these because it can be quite difficult to get past a turbulent mind.
I had quite a satisfactory meditation with these methods yesterday.
