I have started a daily meditation practice again. I started about 3 days ago.
Considering the advice of Yutadhammo Bikkhu I am approaching it with caution because of my mental illness/mental ill health.
I am going to be doing breath counting in cycles. So counting up to 5, then up to 6 all the way up to 10.
I find it very hard to count up to 10 without getting lost so I decided the duration of my practice will consist of one cycle or two if I finish before 3 minutes.
Wish me luck
