Can counting the breaths be a way to be more mindful?

I suppose when I meditate eyes closed my mind goes to whatever it's "suppose to worry about in order to survive" but some of it is just nonsense and I come back to the breath.

However, when I count my breaths (up to 10 and start over) I find it's extremely helpful as it focuses my attention on my breathing and the number Im on and what Im going to say next mentally (2, 3, 4, etc).
