At the Epsom meeting there was some discussion about mindfulness, and we also practised a short exercise. On the Breast Cancer Network Australia website there were these suggestions too:

  • Download the free Smiling Mind app for your smartphone or computer and try the mindfulness exercises.
  • Search iTunes for free mindfulness podcasts, e.g. Zencast.
  • YouTube has a wide selection of relaxation and mindfulness exercises.
  • Check with your local council or community health centre for a group relaxation class in your area.
  • Ask if your local gym offers subsidised meditation, relaxation or yoga sessions.
  • Rain Sounds HQ is a collection of live-recorded rain sounds. It’s free to download and could help 
you to sleep.
