It gets easier with practice. When I was young I took martial arts - a style of karate heavy on kata, and breathing and "clearing the mind" was a big part of it, so I internalized some of that, especially that it could be used to do things like reduce or eliminate pain.

Later, my first serious boyfriend was a buddhist, and my 18yo self got involved with it as well.

So I guess in one form or another it has always been part of my life. Still, I don't think it has to be for one to get there. I think it just takes practice.
