Improve your life and health: This audio recording includes two full meditation sessions and is designed to teach you how to get the life you want through meditation: Specifically how to stop smoking and achieve mindfulness in your daily life. First, Smoking Cessation: Smoking cessation (colloquially quitting smoking) is the process of discontinuing tobacco smoking.
Tobacco contains nicotine, which is addictive, making the process of quitting often very prolonged and difficult. Smoking is the leading preventable cause of death worldwide, and quitting smoking significantly reduces the risk of dying from tobacco-related diseases such as heart disease and lung cancer. Seventy per cent of smokers would like to quit smoking, and 50 per cent report attempting to quit within the past year.
Many different strategies can be used for smoking cessation, including quitting without assistance ("cold turkey" or cut down then quit), medications such as nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), and behavioural counselling. The majority of smokers who try to quit do so without assistance, though only 3 to 6% of quit attempts without assistance are successful. Use of medications and behavioural counselling both increase success rates, and a combination of both medication and behavioural interventions has been shown to be even more effective. Because nicotine is addictive, quitting smoking leads to symptoms of nicotine withdrawal such as craving, anxiety and irritability, depression, and weight gain.
Professional smoking cessation support methods generally endeavour to address both nicotine addiction and nicotine withdrawal symptoms. This short meditation is designed to help you to achieve smoking cessation through exercises to relax the body and the mind while focusing on your breathing and receiving reassuring and reinforcing instruction with the use of visualisation.
This audio is not hypnotism, simply the use of effective positive affirmation while in a relaxed state. Results will be better if used in association with other interventions mentioned above. The intention of the second guided meditation is that you will learn to bring mindfulness into your daily life which will help you to feel less stressed, more at ease within your body and mind.

Improve your life and health: This audio recording is designed to teach you how to get the life you want through meditation: Specifically how to lose weight, eat mindfully, and develop inner confidence.
Deciding to take action to lose weight is a personal choice and is very much dictated by individual circumstances and feelings: However, Doctors agree that if you're overweight or obese, losing weight can reduce your risk of some potentially serious health problems.
Most people who need to lose weight can get health benefits from losing even a small amount – about 5% – of their weight if they keep it off. Health problems linked to being overweight: If you're overweight or obese, you have a higher risk of: high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, some types of cancer, osteoarthritis, and back pain. You can find out if you're overweight by calculating your body mass index (BMI). This shows whether you're a healthy weight for your height.
The size of your waist is also important. If it's too large, your risk of health problems is higher.
This audio meditation is designed to assist you to lose weight, eat mindfully, and develop inner confidence with the use of relaxation, breathing techniques, positive affirmations and guided visualisation in a relaxed state.
This audio presentation will take you gently into a deep restful sleep under the guidance of Sara Dylan.

This short audio presentation by Dr Denis McBrinn and narrated by Sara Dylan is designed to bring a clear understanding of what clutter is, how to stop accumulating it, and to lead you gently into reflection on to clear the clutter currently in your life.
We all want our lives to be full of those things we believe will bring us joy and happiness.
But we also need to be careful not to fill our lives with too much stuff.
Ours is the most complex culture in history.
We experience more activity and devour more information in one day than our ancestors did in a lifetime.
We live in the midst of an intense technological haze of consumerism, advertising and entertainment.
We find it hard to dispose of stuff and now plastic pollutes the planet.
We seem to have an infinite capacity for making a mess!
So why do humans create so much clutter?
