    We all know meditation is good for us generally for wellbeing, but I came across an mp3 recently that I really love that is both a guided meditation and affirmations specifically for diabetes. Its been created by Belleruth Naparstek and has some beautiful imagery.

    Meditation isn't everyone's choice but I figured it worth sharing. I really find it calming and beneficial.

    I tried the free Headspace thing. I gave up at session six. They are three minutes long and repetitive to the nth degree. The price of the follow on sessions are a bit steep, too. Having said that, I learned some yoga relaxation excercises many years ago and use those to stop palpitations getting out of control and to aid sleep and they are good but would be better if I could listen to a sonorous voice guiding me.

    I haven't tried the Headspace, but really like the HealthJourney's (link I posed above). Plus the affirmations are also something I play in the background whilst I work and I like them too. As they are specifically about diabetes - I wanted to share as I know they are helping me.

    i find various ASMR techniques to be therapeutic, there are so many on youtube lasting from 3 mins to 4 hours. although meditation is intended to be carried out in complete silence, i don't have the luxury of being in a quiet place so a 'mind massage' is the closest i can get
