If restlessness, agitation, or doubt occurs [while meditating], don't intensify the distraction by following it. Instead, say to yourself, "Let me think how I started. I started from the breath. It is not difficult to find my breath." Breathe several times quickly and return your attention to the breath and its natural pace.
