Flex those concentration muscles!
Always remember that simply sitting still for extended periods of time is one of the most challenging poses that humans can assume in their lifetime.
Sitting still requires the greatest amount of energy and concentration than any other posture that your body can get into, which is why everything that you do in your Asana practice is essentially preparing you for this advanced ability to sit motionlessly and quietly for meditation.
