You can try this simple method to see the benefits of meditation
in just minutes: Sit comfortably, close your eyes, and tense

feel each part relaxing, watch for parts that may escape notice,
like a tight jaw. If tension remains somewhere, tense up that
part again, then let it relax.
Let your breathing fall into a comfortable pattern, and pay
attention to it. Be aware of your breath as it passes in and

you have to do is continually bring attention back to your breath.
