I lay on the floor, my earphones leaking the new breathing exercises into my head. It’s week one of the programme and the emphasis is on relaxing and using the power of the mind to visualise. Having found its place between physical exercise and meditation, this is the easiest part of my routine: lie down, close your eyes, relax, breathe, and ease your mind into the realm of power and positivity.
With the doors of the french-balcony wide open, I felt the cool, fresh air inviting me to celebrate with the sunshine in a perfect mixture of springtime and early summer. In my relaxed state, with my mind focussed on its formidable ability to influence mood and create positivity, I had all that I needed.
