I have trouble concentrating during breathing exercises; what should I do?

When doing breathwork, the goal is not to reach a crystal-clear mind and perfect focus. When we’re left with our thoughts and when we try to concentrate on our breath, it is only natural that we get distracted, and thoughts swarm into our minds. The goal is to notice these thoughts and bring our attention back to our breath without following them. The more we practice, the sooner we can notice that we are distracted and the sooner we can return to our breath. Being in a physically comfortable environment, eliminating distractions, and doing regular breathing exercises will help with our focus. Don't make it a struggle to concentrate, be patient, and remember that you are doing something exceptionally good for yourself, even if it doesn't seem like it in the beginning.
