We have developed a series of short audio programmes designed to help you navigate through the challenging times in which we find ourselves.
7 Days of Finding your balance with Glyn Fussell and Jane Bytheway, offers you a series of easy to follow mindfulness exercises to follow each day, designed to help you take a breath and find some space.
Time for you, time to find your balance, time to build resilience and calm…
None of these tried and tested mindfulness exercises require you to be religious or even to consider yourself to be actively spiritual – all of them are about creating the best personal conditions you can so you can thrive and do all you need to do when under pressure or isolated.
These are resources we use on our programmes, that you can now choose to try at home. Below you’ll find an introduction that helps to set the scene. Then, every day there is a choice of three exercises ranging from two minutes (Take a moment) to about five minutes (Take Five) with a maximum of ten minutes duration (Take Longer) so that you can bring yourself back to a more resourceful state whenever you choose. Just decide how long you want to spend on any particular day and find a quiet space where you will not be disturbed.
With all these exercises, take what works for you and leave what doesn’t. We recommend that you might want to listen to these exercises with headphones and that you don’t listen to them when you are driving.
This kind of thing always works best when it becomes woven into the fabric of our ordinary lives, so you might want to see if you can make it a practice that happens every day. You can try a new one each day, or you could just stick to one you really enjoy.
We hope you enjoy exploring this Oasis audio programme. We’d love to hear how you get on.
