Try Out a Guided Meditation

One of the core elements of our program at Welwynn is mindfulness: being aware of the present moment in a non-judgemental way.  Mindfulness is the first step towards any change in behavior or belief.  If we don't realize what's happening, or are too wrapped up in judgements, we cannot our response.  In mindfulness practice, we set aside a few minutes to practice tuning into the present.  This time of focused practice makes it easier to be mindful as we move throughout the day.

I've recorded one of the meditations that we use in our group therapy sessions at Welwynn.  Most people report feeling more calm, centered, and present after completing the meditation - pretty good results for something that takes just 6 minutes!  Check it out for youself and feel free to share this post in your networks.
