2018 Mar 048m 32s
What Went Well is a well-researched and established strategy for wellbeing, created by Martin Seligman. Because this is quite a detailed episode (though still under 10 mins) I've also transcribed it into a website article. See the Wellbeing section of my website.

52 WAYS to WELLBEING - 3: BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN AFFECT YOUR WELLBEING
2018 Jan 225m 58s
Yes, I know, I really should have done this as the first episode! But I wanted to started with a couple of more practical ideas and then do this one, which is more about what's in your head. I show you that although you might think you don't have much control over your life, you CAN have a lot of control over your wellbeing because the four important pillars are relatively easy to tackle: food, sleep, exercise and relaxation. My books, website, teaching materials and talks give lots of science and practical advice and my podcast episodes offer you one manageable idea at a time. Perfect for schools. Join me!

This episode tells you why, gives you some practical "rules" for what counts as relaxation, and offers ideas for how to build this into a busy day and life. Perfect for schools.

This is a free audio to teach you how to relax your breathing and reduce stress levels. Really useful at times when you're feeling anxious or stressed and to reduce feelings of panic. Everyone should know how to do this! Practise BEFORE you need it - then you'll be able to do it without the audio.
