  9. This is a short guide to help people who are struggling with visualization because they can't focus or concentrate for long periods of time. As such, it may be good for people with ADD or similar. This guide assumes that you know what visualization is and that you are able to do it.
  11. Begin by visualizing a canvas in your mind. The canvas can be any colour but if you really can't decide, use white. On the canvas, visualize the number 0 in a colour which contrasts the canvas well. If you used white for the canvas, use something like navy blue or black for the number.
  13. Next, relax your body and mind slightly and become aware of your breathing. Take a minute or so to allow your breathing to slow to a level which feels relaxing. This will help you stay focused during the final step.
  15. Now that you're aware of your breathing, begin counting up on the canvas.
  17. The canvas says 0.
  18. Breathe in ... ... And out.
  19. The canvas says 1.
  20. Breathe in ... ... And out.
  21. The canvas says 2.
  23. Continue this process all the way up to 100. That's right - without getting distracted! If you miss even one breath, reset the canvas to 0 and start again!
  25. You might not be able to reach 100 on your first try, or even your second or third. Don't worry. Each time you try this, you will improve your focus skills a little bit, and you will be able to reach 100 if you keep trying. Practice makes perfect!
  27. Remember to have fun while you do it and please feel free to pour your success/failure stories into me if you so desire. I hope you get something useful from this guide.
