Focus Relaxation Video
10-minute meditation

“This is a 10-minute meditation focusing on the body and breath – to help you relax and feel more ‘grounded’.

Find a quiet place to sit, where you won’t be disturbed or interrupted.

Try to have a fairly upright back – supported and comfortable, and place your feet flat on the floor.

Allow yourself to be guided in this meditation, don’t worry if your mind gets distracted – that’s what it does! Each time this happens, just notice with kindness, and simply bring it back to focusing on the meditation again.

I hope you find it useful…”
