It is easy to think of other things during the practice. The mind starts to dwell on business or breakfast and so many other diversions that have not the slightest relevance to the practice in hand. Don't become frustrated for this will cause mental stress. Only try to be aware of any wandering tendency of the mind. If it wanders let it wander, but ask yourself the question: "Why am I thinking of other things?" This will automatically encourage the awareness to return to the practice of nadi shodhana. Fry to be as aware as possible of the breath and the mental counting.
One can practise this technique for any length of time. We recommend at least ten minutes daily.
