When it comes to breathwork, practice makes progress. This is why your wandering mind is a blessing. During breathwork you don’t have to remain focused 100% of the time. In fact each time you find yourself distracted this is a great opportunity to practice refocusing.
Typically we start our practice focused on our breathing, thoughts and distractions pop up, we become aware of these distractions, then we refocus on the breath. Each time we repeat this cycle and bring our attention back to the breath we strengthen our ability to focus. Strengthening our ability to focus during breathwork is going to benefit us in our everyday lives. Improving your focus leads to greater emotional control and psychological well-being
Know that this process takes time, but eventually it will become easier. Hang in there, don’t get frustrated, and be kind to yourself. Every time we practice we strengthen our brain’s neural pathways. Our brains will literally rewire itself to make the things that we practice easier.
