JULIET JONES MEDITATION

As an introduction to Mental Health Awareness Week 2021, Juliet talks about Oxytocin - a "happy hormone" that is known to have a positive effect on mood and emotions.

Oxytocin has the power to regulate our emotional responses and pro-social behaviors, including trust, empathy, gazing, positive memories, processing of bonding cues, and positive communication.

Release Oxytocin naturally by connecting with nature - and you will feel better!  Listen to Juliet's presentation on Oxytocin right here. 

Juliet has also provided a FREE meditation session that can help with your mental health and wellbeing.  Download it below and enjoy in your own time.

FREE MEDITATION SESSION

Juliet has very kindly put together a wondeful 10 minute meditation session which will help you to relax and connect with nature.  Set some time just for yourself and find a quiet place where you won't be disturbed.  Turn off your mobile.  Sit or lie back and enjoy your meditation session.  Remember, practice makes perfect!

Most people feel stressed from time to time.  Some people find stress helpful or even motivating. But if stress is affecting your life, there are things you can try that may help.

It's not always easy to recognise when stress is the reason you're feeling or acting differently.  If you are not sure how you are feeling, a great starting point is to try the NHS Mood Self-Assessment.
