When practising our Mindfulness it is helpful to :

Make a choice to close our eyes if this feels okay or focus on a particular spot on the floor or wall.

Be in our own little bubble if with friends or classmates or find a quiet place to practise. 

Find a comfortable position that helps us be as still as possible. 

Bringing attitudes of kindness, patience and repetition, as these are very useful when learning and developing new skills.  

Remembering it is very natural for our attention to wander during out practice (like the puppy mind). When we notice we can  choose to bring our attention back to the breath and body.
