Hi - I have read several threads lately on here about the benefits of meditation/relaxation and because I know I do get very panicky i thought i would give it a go.  Have looked at Claire Weekes books on Amazon and am going to invest in one.  But I am also going to get an MP3 player (there's a whole new world to explore Huh?) and would be grateful for any suggestions for the sort of thing i should be playing?  Should it be a talking one or just music...any hints/tips would be really good.

Thanks

Hi! There's a series of CDs that I use called "Meditainment" (sorry if I'm not supposed to mention the brand name!). They're twenty-minute guided relaxation meditations, involving things like sitting on a tropical island or relaxing in a hammock in a garden. I find them really nice and relaxing, so I'd recommend them if it's the sort of thing you're after!

Oh, and you can also download them directly from the website if you prefer.

equidistant breathes to improve heart rate variability. Long breathes to activate parasympathetic nervous system. Perfect is the slowest comfortable rate. For most people this would be 4 secs inhale 3 secs hold 5 secs exhale 2 secs hold, but vary as is comfortable for you. Just make sure you breathe less than 6 times a minute. I breathe 1.5 time a min but I'm in my twenties and have been doing this for years.
