My profile

Mind has a wealth of information about mental health issues

Herts Mind Network is a local charity that I tutor for, anxiety management and mindfulness classes.  They provide others services such as peer mentoring, job clubs, financial advice as well as carers pottery classes, art, music and walking groups.

Meditations

Here are a selection of meditations and video clips that you may find useful.

Meditation is very powerful. Just as the heart beats, the brain thinks but if you’re not in a good place, that inner self talk can be negative and feeling overwhelming. Quietening the mind can recharge your batteries and help you cope with the pressures of daily life in a more healthy, peaceful way. Meditations come in all forms, from positive affirmation meditations, to guided visualisation. Breathing techniques taking just a few moments to meditating for 10 minutes per day, longer if possible and an change your peace of mind but it takes practice.

Many people say to me that they can’t meditate, they’ve tried it, their mind is too busy.  That’s like expecting yourself to do a headstand the first time you do yoga or to paint an award winning picture the first time you pick up a paintbrush – it’s unrealistic.  If you’re struggling that much, then you need twice as much!

You can find a huge range on You Tube or there are many apps you can use these days, like Stop, Breathe and Think, Headspace, Insight Timer.  There are also many Ted Talks online on a huge range of mental health and wellbeing talks that are just fantastic.

Peace of mind is priceless and wellness isn’t just a one stop fixes all, we need many tools to help us to achieve it.
