Relaxation Recordings

- The Counseling Center at BYU has put together a collection of recordings to walk you through various relaxation activities. These activities include body scan, self-hypnosis, progressive muscle relaxation, meditation, and more.

- This site by Wellness Proposals includes a variety of relaxation exercises and recordings you can use in a variety of places including at home, in between classes, on your lunch break at work, etc.

- This is a link to recordings and guided exercises which accompany the book The Mindful Way Through Anxiety, by Orsillo and Roemer. These exercises may help you start building a practice of mindfulness.

We also encourage you to do some searching on your own. You may consider searching Google or Youtube with terms like "Progressive Muscle Relaxation," "Mindful Breathing," "Relaxation Recordings," and others.
