I keep getting thrown off from mindfulness meditation because I’m confused about what exact thing I’m supposed to be mindful of

Sometimes I sit down and I try to focus on my breathing, but then I don’t know which part of the breathing to focus on. Do I focus on my chest or my nostrils or the whole process? I also sometimes focus on just sounds. Is that wrong? If I have an itch do I just let it stay itchy or do I scratch it and go back to meditating. I feel like I’m not even meditating at all because I don’t actually know exactly how to do it.

“Let your thoughts happen and allow them to pass and bring your focus back to your breath.” Is there anything more specific than “focus on your breath”? I actually am realizing that I don’t even know what that means or how to do it all
