Do you have access to Kundalini Yoga where you live? The postures and breathing exercises will help you have more concentrated and focused energy in your body and mind. One simple breathing exercise, sit with a straight spine, either cross-legged on the floor, or sitting in a chair, with feet flat on the floor. Place your palms in "prayer pose" at the heart center. Begin to take 4 powerful sniffs in and 2 sniffs out. Keep the breath powerful. The eyes are closed, focused at the 3rd eye point. Keep this up for 1 minute to start, working up to 3 minutes. This will help you to focus your mind. Good Luck and keep in touch with how this is working. Look for a Kundalini Yoga class, as taught by Yogi Bhajan. We can send you videos and manuals, if you don'g have a class available in your area. GTK
