Is Meditation This Easy?
You're not likey to get you into a deep meditative state with this simple exercise. You will get benefits, though. These will almost certainly include a clearer mind and a reduction in stress.
Try to develope a "trigger" for your meditation. You can do your four breaths when you get into car, for example, or right after lunch each day. A trigger is a place or time that reminds you, so your meditation becomes a habit.
Some may say this isn't "real" meditation, but there's nothing wrong with enjoying relaxation you'll get from this technique. You can always pursue deeper meditation later, if you wish. In meantime, remember that not everything has to be difficult to be of value. Why not do an easy one-minute meditation right now?
