Meditate daily: in the early and late hours of the day.
Choosing a time to meditate daily also programs your mind and body to focus on the breath when it is time to do so.
Meditating right before you start the day, will jumpstart your mind and body.
If it is difficult to stop thinking about what you must do during the day, do a list or write in your calendar all your activities for the day.
Your mind will know that you have already began to take care of that task and you can now relax and let it go.
