Breathing is something that we all do but breathing awareness is a type of meditation. After setting aside time to practice mindful breathing, you’ll find it easier to focus your mind. You may find that your mind wanders a hundred of times, or just a few. But you should gently and firmly bring your attention back to the breath. I recently read in a blog- https://www.drcohen.ca/general-category/dr-eliana-cohen-associates-breath-awareness-instructions/ about the breath awareness instructions. If you have never done/heard of it, you might find this blog really helpful.
