What makes now? is a mindfulness idea to reflect upon the experiences which make now. The best way to do this is to focus on each of the five senses, and reflect on experiences of each month. This a personal exercise, and naturally, your experiences will be different to mine.
I started a morning routine about two years ago. Each morning, for twenty minutes, I meditate and I do this by focusing on my breathing. I breath in for the count of 4, hold my breath for the count of 7 and breath out for the count of 8.
