Stop and Take a Breath

This is a simple focusing technique that can be used alone or as a lead in to other focusing activities. The 7:11 breath is the ideal but the main aim is to steady your breathing and lengthen the out breath. Breathing in this slow, controlled way is great for improving vagal tone, a key feature in self-regulation.

 

 

 

 

Time for Sleep

A number of the young people that I’ve been working with have found that they have been experiencing difficulty getting to sleep. This is a short, guided meditation to help ready the body and mind for sleep. The video can be viewed here or better still, download the audio file to a device to listen to with eyes closed.
