You can access all of those via the links above.
And I’m bringing all the other Yoga Nidras, EFT tapping scripts, guided visualisations and meditations to this page for easier access.
While I’m aiming to make the free resources throughout this site as accessible as possible, if you’re looking for a more structured approach, you can either work with me one to one or join the Feel Better Every Day ~ Take Better Care of Your Self online membership programme
And, of course, I hope you find these free offerings beneficial.
As with all self care practices, it’s like taking a vitamin, brushing teeth or physical exercise. We wouldn’t do it just the once and expect transformation.
These are simple and effective mind body PRACTICES.
With practice, the neuroscience shows that many of these tools change our physiology, rewire the brain, retrain the nervous system.
Play with whatever appeals AND know that repetition is where the deeper benefits are gained.
As in the book, I recommend thinking of self care as ONE thing. Ask yourself, in any given moment, what you need and want right now?
How much time do you have available? The yoga nidras are usually about 20 minutes. Other tools take 3 minutes or even less.
How much energy do you have?
Get to know yourself and, as far as possible, do what feels good for YOU.
Yoga Nidra translates as ‘yogic sleep’. Some say 30 minutes equals 2 hours of actual sleep (but the idea is to stay awake and alert while deeply relaxed).
All you need is a comfortable space to lie down or sit comfortably, a blanket or extra layers (it reduces blood pressure so body temperature can drop), an eye mask if you like and 20 minutes or so (lengths vary) to follow along as you allow body and mind to relax more deeply than sleep generally allows.
Because we’re working with the unconscious mind, regular practice makes making positive changes in our daily lives much easier too.
