- When meditating are there easier ways to focus instead of visualizing my breath? I have a hard time concentrating and keeping my mind from wandering when meditating. Does this get better with practice? And what are tips to get better?

- What is the one thing you find gets you stuck when meditating?
I try to focus on breathing feeling the air come in through the nose into the lungs and belly and then out
As I do guided meditations I tend to listen to the voice and then visualize my breath coming in from my nose all the way to my tummy and I count while doing so no matter how long the breath is (and do the same while I breathe out from my tummy (or chest, it depends). I also sometimes visualize waves coming into and off of a beach which is easy for me as I live on an island so easy peasy 😍
Thanks for asking. Namaste.
-Movement: mostly body movements to the music, I imagine how I or a hypothetical person would move to the song I am listening to and how beautiful it is
by the time I'm done, I'm usually much calmer, and focus comes much more easily.
