6th Year SPHE - Guided Meditation & Relaxation Techniques
The 6th year cohort took part in a Guided Meditation Session hosted by Music Therapist, Jessica Sinclair, during their SPHE period on Wednesday.
Jessica guided the girls through techniques they can practice at home to manage their emotions, alleviate stress, switch off and relax.
Two Techniques Jessica used were:
1. Body Scan Technique, a breathing focused meditation.
2. Music Focused Relaxation.
The Body Scan technique draws attention to parts of our bodies where we are unconsciously internalising stress. Music Focused Relaxation uses the emotive element of music focuses us helping to control our breathing and our thoughts.
Some practical suggestions for Music Focused Relaxation Jessica had, are listed below and may be helpful for students and parents alike.
  • Create a playlist with a specific Purpose/goal: Music for Relaxation, Music for Study, Music for Motivation.
  • Music for Relaxation: Find music with 60 beats per minute, like your heartbeat which will bring your heart rate down and lower stress and makes you feel more relaxed. (Spotify has lots of these premade)
  • Music for Study: Be sure to use music with no Lyrics as words draw our minds away if we are studying.
  • Music for Motivation: Music of our own preference that you like and expresses your emotions, this can help during exercise or when preparing for something.
