While you meditate, you may perceive a distraction (odor, sound, feeling etc.) which gives rise to a feeling of frustration. This feeling is normal. Watch it pass and return to your breath. 

If the distraction persists, rather than trying to fight it or laboriously returning to your breath, give your full attention to the distraction. By making this type of hindrance the centre of your attention, you use it and prevent it from becoming a distraction for your attention. 

You might feel a little frustrated, but allow this feeling to be in order to attentively observe and understand where and how in your body and mind the frustration appears. 

This enables you to include everything in your meditation session.
