This guided meditation for a healthy heart helps by focusing your mind on your breath, feeling compassion for your body and releasing tension in your muscles.

Stress comes at us in different ways – illness, break-ups, bereavement, work stress, family life, financial issues. But, this mindfulness meditation is an easy way to learn how to improve your heart health naturally by introducing stress management into your lifestyle.

Too much stress over a long period of time can lead to cardiovascular problems, by making your arteries inflamed. Regular meditation can relax your mind and as a result reduce the work your heart has to do. Most cardiac rehab clinics will include information on dealing with stress, and some will cover relaxation techniques. This heart meditation can be used to help you feel calm and healthy.

Here are some reasons this mindfulness meditation for heart health could help you:

• You can lower the production of cortisol by simply slowing down your breath which will slow your breathing rate.

• Guided meditation can help draw attention from unhelpful thoughts which are exacerbating your stress.

• Mindfulness provides an awareness of how we react to situations and gives us a sense of perspective – not letting us get stressed out in the first place instead of being too reactive in the moment.

• Allows you to observe your emotions before they become problematic.

• Meditation is a free and easy method of stress management available to all.

• Relaxing your tense muscles can reduce the physical sensations of stress.

• Living with a health condition, such as cardiovascular disease, can be stressful, so having techniques to handle that can be particularly useful to people with heart conditions.

• Stress may not cause coronary heart disease or heart attacks, but stress can increase your risk for heart disease.

• Several studies have shown that many people with cardiovascular disease have some kind of anxiety and, this anxiety can often make the heart condition worse.

• Research has found that meditation can raise your heart rate variability (HRV). A high HRV is a sign of healthier heart.

So, arrange a quiet moment when you won’t be disturbed, find a comfortable position and press play to listen to Clare’s relaxing voice. By the end of this meditation you’ll feel lighter and enjoy a sense of calm.
