Guided Self Care for Mental Health and Wellbeing: Mindfulness

Activity: Body Scan

Focusing our thoughts and actions completely on the present moment - which in turns focuses our feelings and biology on the present moment too - mindfulness helps us to balance (or regulate) our stress level.

Regulating our feelings helps us to feel more relaxed and able to focus on the next part of our day more clearly. There are many ways that we can do this, and mindful activities are very useful, effective and quick options for us to consider at any time of the day.

This is ideal to help with relaxation, including to support with falling asleep.
