If you have chosen to be still for more than 5 minutes today, you are probably used to such practices. You may choose to focus on an object, your thoughts, or your body, as in one of these recommendations:

  • Stare at a candle (or other object) with soft eyes. More specific instructions are here. 
  • The 10-minute Relaxation Response with Dr. Herbert Benson can be found here. 
  • This 16-minute audio file takes you through a progressive relaxation.
