"To Lose One's Health Renders Science Null, Art Inglorious, Strength Unavailing and Wealth Useless" Herophilus 300BC How mindful are you about maintaining good health?

It may be an old cliché that your health is your wealth, but it's true.

The ancient Greeks knew that good health is something to develop and treasure.

It is easy to take our health for granted, until we lose it.

Our whole experience of life can be very different if we don’t have good physical and mental health.

"For the first time in history more people are dying from eating too much, than too little" Thich Nhat Hanh

Becoming more mindful means becoming increasingly aware of what is going on inside us and around us. This is especially important while we are eating.

We are what we eat. And what we eat repeatedly, in moderation, should sustain us and provide a sound mind and healthy body

If we eat healthy foods we are likely to be healthy.

If we eat unhealthy foods we are likely to become unhealthy.

This short audio presentation by Dr Denis McBrinn and narrated by Sara Dylan is designed to bring a clear understanding of what breathing is, how to use it, and to lead you gently into reflection of how you can use breathing to bring inner tranquillity into your life.

“If you want to reduce the anxiety from living, live in the moment, live in the breath.” Amit Ray

Breathing is for life!

We could survive without food for several weeks. Without water, the maximum we could survive is one week. Without sleep, we begin to hallucinate after 3 or 4 days.

But without breathing it is minutes!

Most of the time we are completely unaware of our breathing but without it, oxygen does not get into our lungs.

Not breathing deeply enough results in lack of energy and moodiness.

Just by taking a few deep breaths, regularly, you will calm your mind and relax your body.

Suzanne says:

”To all my female friends over 40 years of "age''. Most of us are going through the next stage of our lives. We are at that age where we see the wrinkles, grey hair, and extra pounds.

Menopause has already shown up or just waiting around the corner. We see the pretty 25-year olds and sigh. But, we were 25 once, just like they will one day be our age. What they bring to the table with their youth and zest for life, we bring our wisdom, scars, experience and good hearts.

For all we've been through earning each grey hair; raising kids, paying bills, surviving illnesses and whatever else life has thrown at us, we are survivors... we are warriors... we are strong beautiful women. Like a classic car or fine wine.

While our exterior may not be what it once was, it is traded for our spirit, our courage and our strength to enter this new chapter of our lives with grace, pride and wisdom for all we've been through and accomplished.

Never feel bad about getting older. It is a privilege denied to many.”

In this new audiobook Suzanne will bring some wise words for all women in their 40s and approaching 50. She will be bringing to you, an understanding of what the menopause is; why it happens, how its symptoms can affect you, and how you can use tried and tested tips on how to deal with menopausal symptoms to make your daily life more manageable.

While she will be focusing mainly on key lifestyle changes that you can make and natural remedies that you can use, she will also mention when medication is in order to manage your symptoms.

Remember, ultimately you must always follow your doctor’s instructions: DO SEE YOUR DOCTOR IF you've had trouble with menopausal symptoms which are affecting your daily life in a way that makes it hard for you to cope.

Suzanne is a Nutritional Consultant and a Certified Health & Lifestyle coach.

Contains instruction on key breathing techniques.

Audiobook: INSOMNIA: Meditation for Deep Restful Sleep

Regular price £3.99 Listen immediately
/
Tax included.

This audio presentation will take you gently into a deep restful sleep under the guidance of Sara Dylan. Sara’s soft, kind, reassuring voice will lead you step by step into the safe, comfortable mind-set that will be conducive to achieving deep restful sleep. The intention of this meditation for deep sleep is that you will sleep soundly and deeply and wake up feeling refreshed and re-energised.

Everyone has a rough night or two, and about 30% of adults have occasional or short-term insomnia. Chronic insomnia, though, lasts for more than three weeks. About 10% of adults experience chronic insomnia, and most need treatment to get relief. You can help your doctor evaluate your problem by keeping a sleep diary, which tracks such things as: number and time of caffeinated beverages during the day, naps during the day, your bedtime the previous night, and number of awakenings during the night.

Meditation can help with sleep but there are other things to consider which will improve your chances of getting to sleep and staying asleep. The UK National Health Service recommends the following:

BE SURE TO • go to bed and wake up at the same time every day – only go to bed when you feel tired • relax at least 1 hour before bed – for example, take a bath or read a book • make sure your bedroom is dark and quiet – use thick curtains, blinds, an eye mask or ear plugs • make sure the room is not too hot or too cold • exercise regularly during the day • make sure your mattress, pillows and covers are comfortable

TRY NOT TO • drink alcohol, tea or coffee at least 6 hours before going to bed • eat a big meal late at night

DO SEE YOUR DOCTOR IF • you've had trouble sleeping for months • your insomnia is affecting your daily life in a way that makes it hard for you to cope

Audiobook: Weight Loss the Life You Want Through Meditation

Regular price £3.99 Listen immediately
/
Tax included.

By Virginia Harton Improve your life and health: This audio recording is designed to teach you how to get the life you want through meditation: Specifically how to lose weight, eat mindfully, and develop inner confidence.

Deciding to take action to lose weight is a personal choice and is very much dictated by individual circumstances and feelings: However, Doctors agree that if you're overweight or obese, losing weight can reduce your risk of some potentially serious health problems.

Most people who need to lose weight can get health benefits from losing even a small amount – about 5% – of their weight if they keep it off.

Health problems linked to being overweight: If you're overweight or obese, you have a higher risk of: high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, some types of cancer, osteoarthritis, and back pain.

You can find out if you're overweight by calculating your body mass index (BMI). This shows whether you're a healthy weight for your height.

The size of your waist is also important. If it's too large, your risk of health problems is higher.

This audio meditation is designed to assist you to lose weight, eat mindfully, and develop inner confidence with the use of relaxation, breathing techniques, positive affirmations and guided visualisation in a relaxed state.

Audiobook: Smoking Cessation: The Life You Want Through Meditation

Regular price £3.99 Listen immediately
/
Tax included.

By Virginia Harton Improve your life and health: This audio recording includes two full meditation sessions and is designed to teach you how to get the life you want through meditation: Specifically how to stop smoking and achieve mindfulness in your daily life.

First, Smoking Cessation: Smoking cessation (colloquially quitting smoking) is the process of discontinuing tobacco smoking. Tobacco contains nicotine, which is addictive, making the process of quitting often very prolonged and difficult.

Smoking is the leading preventable cause of death worldwide, and quitting smoking significantly reduces the risk of dying from tobacco-related diseases such as heart disease and lung cancer. Seventy per cent of smokers would like to quit smoking, and 50 percent report attempting to quit within the past year. Many different strategies can be used for smoking cessation, including quitting without assistance ("cold turkey" or cut down then quit), medications such as nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), and behavioural counselling. The majority of smokers who try to quit do so without assistance, though only 3 to 6% of quit attempts without assistance are successful. Use of medications and behavioural counselling both increase success rates, and a combination of both medication and behavioural interventions has been shown to be even more effective.

Because nicotine is addictive, quitting smoking leads to symptoms of nicotine withdrawal such as craving, anxiety and irritability, depression, and weight gain. Professional smoking cessation support methods generally endeavour to address both nicotine addiction and nicotine withdrawal symptoms.

This short meditation is designed to help you to achieve smoking cessation through exercises to relax the body and the mind while focusing on your breathing and receiving reassuring and reinforcing instruction with the use of visualisation. This audio is not hypnotism simply the use of effective positive affirmation while in a relaxed state. Results will be better if used in association with other interventions mentioned above.

The intention of the second guided meditation is that you will learn to bring mindfulness into your daily life which will help you to feel less stressed, more at ease within your body and mind.

Audiobook: Let Go of Anxiety: The Life You Want Through Meditation

Regular price £3.99 Listen immediately
/
Tax included.

By Virginia Harton Improve your life and health: This audio recording is designed to teach you how to get the life you want through meditation. Specifically how to let go of anxiety and achieve chakra balance and full relaxation.

This audio includes two full meditation sessions: Firstly to help you to let go of anxiety and second to clear your chakras and bring full body relaxation.

First: Anxiety is a word we use to describe feelings of unease, worry and fear. It incorporates both the emotions and the physical sensations we might experience when we are worried or nervous about something. Although we usually find it unpleasant, anxiety is related to the ‘fight or flight’ response – our normal biological reaction to feeling threatened.

We all know what it’s like to feel anxious from time to time. It’s common to feel tense, nervous and perhaps fearful at the thought of a stressful event or decision you’re facing – especially if it could have a big impact on your life. For example:

sitting an exam going into hospital attending an interview starting a new job moving away from home having a baby being diagnosed with an illness deciding to get married or divorced

In situations like these it’s understandable to have worries about how you will perform, or what the outcome will be. For a short time you might even find it hard to sleep, eat or concentrate. This short meditation is designed to help you to deal with anxiety through exercises to relax the body and the mind while focusing on your breathing.

Your chakras are energy centres located within and around your body which get blocked for various different reasons. Your way of thinking has a big influence on your chakras. Negative thinking can block their flow and positive thinking helps them flow freely. In this meditation you will cleanse and clear your 7 major chakras. Virginia Harton will gently guide you through each chakra during this guided meditation. The intention for this chakra meditation is that all of your chakras will be cleansed and you will feel total body relaxation.

A full 30 minute progressive muscular relaxation session guided by the hypnotic voice of Norman Brook.

This recording is designed to teach you to relax, to escape from the stress of everyday life, forget your worries and just let go.

To get you to relax we are going to ask you to perform a series of exercises. When a muscle is contracted and then relaxed it returns to a state that is more relaxed than before the contraction took place. To achieve a totally relaxed state we need to perform a series of exercises that contract and relax all the muscles in your body. Eventually only a few seconds will be needed to achieve full body relaxation. Take time to learn this and like self directed relaxation the results can be very rewarding.
