    To do the exercise, lay down comfortably on your back. While counting slowly to five, take a deep breath using your diaphragm. Then hold your breath to the count of four. Finally, breath out while counting to six.

    Repeat this twenty times. Try to let go of the inner talk in your head. Just observe any thoughts or feelings that might arise.

    For the first week, do this exercise just before you go to sleep. Then during the second week, make another session early in the morning, so two sessions per day. And for the third week, take time for a third session in the afternoons.

    For some reason it was difficult to let go of the tension in the back of my neck.

    To my surprise I noticed that the exercise took me almost nine minutes last night.

    I still find tensions in my body during the exercise.

    I notice the tensions when holding my breath. I'd like to get rid of them.

    I've been sleeping really well, and haven't had any difficulty in getting sleep. Hopefully this continues.

    I couldn't get sleep, and I thought what's wrong. Then I realized I hadn't done my exercise for the evening. It was 2am but I straightened this out - and slept well!

    It's funny to think about, when you notice a certain thought has occupied your mind for some time, why it is that you didn't notice the thought when it was first arising.

    At least there's one challenge where I'm getting along well at the moment.

    Diaphragmatic breathing is awesome!

    Taking deep breaths is easier in the evening than in the morning for some reason.

    Finding a good rhythm in counting the breaths.

    Did my afternoon exercise straight after working out which is not the best idea. I had to adapt the exercise a bit as it was hard to hold my breath.
