      Excellent starting advice.
      As time goes on, you may
      want to refine this simple
      practice by (for example)
      inhaling through the nose
      but exhaling through the
      mouth, and altering details
      of your posture, such as
      learning/assuming lotus
      position and/or turning the
      palms upward in receptivity
      -- or not. :-)
