Ask HN: What's the most valuable thing you can learn in an hour?

I tried to post my answer on HN, but it required a login, so I'm posting it here instead:

Basic breathing meditation.

1. Breathe in and out, then in again, then out again.

2. Keep doing this, and focus all of your attention on your breathing.

3. When your attention strays to something else, bring it back to the breathing. Repeat.

Doing this for a minute or two several times a day, e.g. when you become annoyed with something will change your life.
