I love the idea of "including" the breath. I will try to do it throughout the day, as it means I don't necessarily have to stop what I'm doing.

Q- I noticed that I was distracted I couldn't feel the distraction it just dissipates into something else. Is that what you mean or can you actually contemplate yourself in your distraction? Does that make sense?

Thea Gordon-Rawlings

Q. Sometimes I wonder whether or not I have actually been distracted e.g. does noticing a change in the breath and naming it with thoughts, or naming a sound you hear in the external world, or naming hunger, mean you should start again from no.1?
