A second relaxation CD for Springhill Hospice Clients
During July the counsellors at the hospice recorded a second CD of relaxation and meditation exercises. The first CD which was recorded in 2013 proved to be popular with patients here at the hospice, as well as our counselling clients. Relaxation has many proven benefits. It can help to;
- reduce tiredness
- improve performance
- reduce pain
- cope with stress and anxiety
as well as improving self-confidence and benefitting our personal relationships.
On this CD there are two tracks, one to help to settle the restless mind, which can help the listener to manage worrying thoughts, and the other to help to restore balance and energise the body.
Patients and volunteers in the Day Hospice were involved in the project, taking part in a competition to design the cover for the CD case. Participants took part in a relaxation exercise beforehand to get them in the mood and to provide inspiration for their designs. The winning cover was designed by Sophie Smith, a student nurse on secondment at the Hospice.
CD's cost just £5 and so far sales of the first one have raised £1,360 for the Hospice. Both Relaxation CD 1 and 2 are available from reception at Springhill Hospice and soon to be available online also.
