Sit quietly and comfortably and remember to close your eyes. Focus on your breathing making sure to breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth at a consistent pace. After you have controlled your breathing, focus on relaxing your muscles starting your feet, moving up your legs, through your torso, and out your arms to your fingertips.
Focus your mind – this technique can be done at any time, anywhere even while wearing scrub hats. It's simply a matter of focusing your attention on one specific thing.
