With the breath awareness meditation, you learn the fundamentals of meditation. Gentle focus, non-judgmental attention, letting go of assumptions. Keeping your gentle focus on your breath and choosing to stay with your focus over associating with your thoughts increases your ability to concentrate and let go of distractions. This is an excellent meditation for beginners and for people who are having difficulties dealing with distractions at work such as chats, emails and other notifications.
Several studies have shown that meditation can help the brain deal with an overstimulated world. The studies show that meditation gives you the ability to regulate a brain wave called the Alpha rhythm. This Alpha rhythm turns down the level of distracting information helping your brain stay focused and on track. If you practice the breath meditation daily you will notice improvements in your ability to manage stress, complete tasks and your listening skills.
