280. Breathing in, I count one, breathing out, I count two,  and so on up to ten. Then I come back to one and repeat the process. The in-breath is on an odd number, the out-breath on an even number. Using odd and even numbers like this is an aid to developing concentration and so learning to discipline one's thoughts. Many people starting out in meditation express surprise at finding out how unruly is their mind. Counting the breath can help quieten the mind.
