- Waiting? Standing in line? Bring your attention to your breath.
- If something horrible happens - Zen lets you step back a few feet, take a look at what is really going on, and then snicker a little.
- Try making overtones. Sit comfortably with your eyes closed. Shape your lips like you have a straw. Inhale and then exhale sounds like OOO, YOU, EEE. Take any vowel sound and stay with it for a few minutes. This is the ancient practice of toning.
