Guided Meditation - Sensory Awareness

Sensory Awareness meditation is a simple meditative technique intended to reduce stress, align concentration and balance emotions. This practice uses your senses to focus your attention, moving your awareness from sound to smell, touch, taste and sight. This is a versatile practice, and will be different almost every time you practise it, because it is likely that scents, sights and noises will change from one day to the next. Use this technique on mornings when you find it particularly hard to focus, or feel overwhelmed with challenging thoughts, either first thing in the morning or just before starting work, to shift and reset your focus.
