Meditate.

When you get up, sit quietly and become friends with your mind.

Sit on a chair, feet planted or on the floor, legs crossed. Spine in neutral curves, hands rested on your lap, gaze dropped.

Place the mind on the breath – the slow inhale and exhale. When thoughts pop into your head, label them thinking and let them go, coming back to the breath.

You may notice that you’re disturbed by internal dialogs – what you want to eat, to-do lists etc. Or you may be disturbed by the external world – dogs barking etc. Learn to let go of both of these, not reacting and gently returning to the breath.

There are a lot of great apps out there too, for tracking your progress or guiding you.
