Quotes

"Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it's not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won't. It's whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere."
Barack Obama

Relaxation Exercises

The relaxation exercises given below are based on a technique known as Progressive Muscular Relaxation (PMR) which we hope will help you to relax your mind and body.

 

Please note: If you have physical health issues such as back problems we recommend that you speak to your GP before trying these relaxation exercises.

Please do not play these whilst driving

 

PMR teaches you to become aware of your stress and how it affects your body. The techniques will help you notice your stress at an early stage and learn how to stop it. It is likely you will need to practice the technique for a few weeks before you feel the benefits. Please try the extended exercise first and as you become more familar and confident with this you can move onto the brief exercise.

 

We recommend that you play the recordings in a room which is quiet and you can sit comfortably.
