Just three days in to my new meditation routine I'm already finding it easier than I have in the past.
A lot of the problem with meditation is that you are often not really told how to do it, just given sweeping statements that you are instantly expected to grasp.
Oak is the first app I've personally used which actually tells you how to focus on your breath. It's guided meditation is simple which helps you settle quickly but, rather than just saying "focus on your breath" you are told to identify where you most feel it and that becomes your focal point.
For me, it's the feel of the air in my nostrils during inhale then switches to the relaxation of my chest during exhale. Identify and focus.
It may seem a simple, perhaps insignificant, distinction to make but, in doing so, it illustrates that your practice is unique to you and, because of this, there is no right or wrong way to do it.
Too often we get hung up on doing things in exactly a certain way (often as dictated by someone else) but there is no single right way for everyone.
