Here are some guided free guided meditations to help you
with your mindfulness practice for mental health:
Three minute breathing space
This exercise is a way to step out of “automatic pilot” and invite an awareness of the present moment. It can be used as a mini meditation to help you feel more grounded throughout your day.
This is a very brief meditation that can be very helpful for busy people, particularly caregivers, who need just a moment of pause to turn inward in the midst of the demands of taking care of others.
Mindfulness of the Senses
This is a meditation that explores the different senses through eating something like a raisin or a piece of chocolate. Try this meditation to see what it is like to explore an ordinary object with a beginner’s mind.
10 minute breath meditation
This is a longer meditation that focuses on breath. With mindfulness meditation we just observe the breath by experiencing the sensations in the body as they come and go. This is a longer meditation that helps to settle the body and mind.
Mindfulness of Sounds
In this meditation we turn towards sounds as they come and go. Notice what it is like to bring mindfulness to the soundscape around you and relate to sounds in a new way.
Mindfulness of Emotions
This is a challenging meditation where we bring mindfulness to emotions in the body. We can notice the difference between pleasant and unpleasant emotions.
When we are standing still we can bring awareness to what it feels like to stand upright and feel the ground beneath our feet. This is a meditation we can do when waiting for a bus or in the check out line in the grocery store.
Self compassion meditation
Cultivate a kinder relationship to yourself with this meditation for self compassion.
