- Breathe in, smile, breathe out, let go.
- If you know you need to knuckle down to a sustained period of concentration, consider what may distract you before you start, and disable these distractions if possible. For example, you might decide to get a meal ready for a short mid-task break; or you might make a few phone calls to preempt people from calling you.
- Theravada Buddhism believes that reincarnation is the collection of positive and negative forces or karma that we have created in our lives, which jumps once we have died into a new birth. After death, this energy of I moves forward into the next few moments, becoming a fetus. How it manifests depends upon a complex of particular conditions, including mind states in the moment of death.
