Mindfulness and Wellbeing Exercises

During times of stress, it is important to ensure that you look after yourself and feel well, The following exercises are suggested for wellbeing and improving your sense of calm:

Exercise 1:

Sit in a comfortable position, and close your eyes (or lower your eyes). This is best done in a quiet room.

Focus your attention on your breathing as it flows in and out of your body. Stay in touch with the sensation of breathing in and out.

Do not change how you are breathing, but notice that after a while your mind may wander. Gently bring attention back to your breathing.

Stay like this for one minute. You may notice that your mind becomes calm - or you may get a sense of stillness.

After a minute open your eyes and be present in the room again.
