I recently learned about meditation by Yuttadhammo Bhikkhu, it is suggested that when one is walking one says "walking, walking, walking, walking..." to be mindfull and create a clear though, this can be done when doing other things like when one is brushing the teeths one can say " brushing, brunshing, brushing, brushing...", and so on to many other things.
Should this be done for activities like writting, studying or reading? As this requires more concentration I don't understand if it is benefitial to continue this practice while performing this tasks. If not what would other forms to be mindful and not to let the mind wonder during these tasks? I tried to focus on my breath for a many times but it doesn't seem to work I always get caught up in wondering in the mind and anxiety soon follows.
Thank you very much.
PS: I started practicing saying these words to myself a short time ago.
