I found this meditation an easier guide. It was quiet with great focus on each aspect of guiding the body through the mediation. I also thought that focusing on my breathing was much easier and I felt as though it was easier to let go of outside interfering thoughts. I also recognized that my body, especially my hands and arms felt heavier (although not in an uncomfortable way) as though I was more relaxed. It was more calming for my mind and body.
I found this exercise difficult to follow. That may be because I did them back to back and found my mind needing to concentrate more on the guided meditation than the first breath counting meditation
My experience was that the breath counting exercise was more relaxing. I felt as though I had more of a focus that kept my mind from wandering. I felt as though with more practice, that this could be utilized in everyday events, that it is a skill that can be used in a variety of situations.
