This meditation is ideal if you need a pause from your day to slow down and calm down, and you may wish to put it on as you are lying in bed at night preparing to sleep.

This guided meditation encourages a deep breath through the passive relaxation of the belly. We tend to hold a lot of unconscious tension in our bellies, and allowing this area to relax may help calm the nervous system, slow down the heartbeat, and allow more breath in and out of the lungs as we let go of compression in the belly. This meditation is ideal if you need a pause from your day to slow down and calm down, and you may wish to put it on as you are lying in bed at night preparing to sleep.
