Below you can find guided audio for some short and easy mindfulness meditations.
Learn to be more aware of the sights, sounds and smells around you. Practice guiding your mind back to the present moment when you get distracted.
Learn to focus on observing your breathing. As the breath is always available, it makes an excellent subject that can help you ground yourself when you are struggling with the world.
Body scan meditation
Explore your body and the different sensations contained within it. You might be surprised how many there are. This gives you piece of mind next time you experience a mysterious twitch: it's going on all the time when we pay attention to it.
Learn to shift your focus from point to point. Anxiety can make it difficult to "clear your mind", so, instead, this meditation will focus on shifting your attention around without allowing intrusive thoughts to get in the way.
Learning to identify and label thoughts as positive or negative without getting caught up in them. By explicitly labelling thoughts, we can take some of the emotional power away from them.
