Meditation for Confession
While doing Zazen Meditation, it would be good for you to try to confess in your mind for something you have done, and also to apologize to those who suffered because of what you have done for them.
Then you might change your life, getting good health, good job and good relationships with people around you.

Concentration to Breathing
Through meditation, you can concentrate on breathing!
Then you would be able to shut out various thoughts rising from your mind, and concentrate on what you should do now.
Meditation will activate your brain and improve your mental condition.
