What Is Focused-Attention Meditation?     

Focused meditation can be a useful tool for people who want to try meditation for stress relief. This meditation style allows you to focus your attention on an object, sound, or sensation rather than trying to achieve a clear mind without a specific focal point. You do not need an instructor for the same which makes it accessible to anyone with a few minutes of time, something to focus on, and a quiet place.

Make sure that you’re sitting in a comfortable position. Close your eyes. Keep them soft with the eyelids resting gently. Straighten your spine and check the position of your shoulders. Don’t bend your neck, make sure that your chin is slightly upturned as you channelize your energy to the point between your eyes. Take three gentle breaths to calm your mind and align yourself with the rhythm of your breathing pattern. Relax your mind and concentrate all your energy to focus on the task that you want to complete. Breathe in, breathe out and let go of all the tension.
