How to do a bodyscan
Find a comfortable and quiet place and make sure you aren’t going to be disturbed for at least 15 minutes.
It is best to lie down but you can also do this exercise in a comfortable chair.
Let Emma’s voice guide you through your breathing and each area of your body, starting at your feet and moving up.
Concentrate on your in and out breaths, allowing other thoughts to come in and out of your mind if they want to. Acknowledge them and then move on.
Move through your whole body, breathing through each part. If you feel you are falling asleep then you can prop yourself up with a pillow or sit up.
Once the relaxation is over take time to open your eyes and get up slowly. Give yourself time to have a glass of water and reflect.
