My 1 minute hack to concentrating in meditation

I think anyone who has tried meditating before knows how easy it can be to get distracted. It’s even more true when you are trying to specifically meditate on one thing. So this is my 1 minute hack to concentrating in meditation. 

Ready for it? 


That’s it. Just focus on your breathing for 1 minute. It’s a timeless, age old technique that even the Tibetan monks still use when they want to focus on their meditation. If it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for you. 

Whenever you catch your mind wandering to what you have left to do for the day, how pointless the meditation is, or trying to figure it all out for yourself…you MUST refocus on your breath.

All those distractions are your brain’s way of trying to take charge again, but that’s not what meditation is about. 

Meditation is about letting GO of control. Of listening to the whispers around you, or your gut instinct, as to what you really need to focus on.

Meditation is about connecting to a higher source of intelligence.

Which you can’t do if your brain is still in control. 

So you’ve got to let it go. And because we can’t physically switch off our brains, we have to focus on something that isn’t thought related. Seeing as emotions are attached to thoughts, we can’t focus on emotions. Because we can’t see spiritual energy, we can’t focus on that either. 

So the only energetic body left to focus on is our physical one. 

The only system in your body you can consciously control is – your breathing. 

So you breathe. 

Your job in life is to know WHAT you want to do with your life and WHY you want to do it. 

The Universe is responsible for figuring out HOW it will all happen. 

So, in the meantime, while it’s figuring it out and communicating it to you in meditation – You. Just. Breathe.
