Activities for relaxation

In this section, there are a number of resources to help you to relax. Some of the staff have prepared relaxation scripts that you could listen to before bed time, or if you want to take a mindfulness break during the day (coming soon). There is also information on different breathing techniques that you can use to help you relax or if you are feeling anxious or worried to help you to feel calm. You may also enjoy joining in with the other breathing, meditation and yoga videos, or simply listening to some calming music. Find a comfy spot, sit back and relax!
