Below is the first mp3 in a guided series of mindfulness strategies designed to assist in distress tolerance and reduction.
Recent research is indicating that with as little as 20 minutes of mindfulness practice daily the brain actually changes. The part of the brain that send messages of anxiety and distress slows down and the part that sends messages of calmness and comfort to the body gets more active. So this stuff is not just a sugar pill, it actually does make a difference. You don't have to do it all the time, but once you practice some of the strategies we have made available on this website then you can adjust and modify them, or make up your own, and incorporate them into your daily routine. Like any new skill, they need to be practiced and it is best to practice them BEFORE you really need them so that they are familiar to you.

I like the recording and would like to keep it however the download option only opens a new tab and plays the track - it will not allow me to save it.
I like the recording and would like to keep it however the download option only opens a new tab and plays the track - it will not allow me to save it. I've checked my internet settings but I can't find any issues. Is there another way for me to get the recording?
