Guidance Cards

We’ve created a table of words for guidance/inspiration for you to print out and use (image shown below).  These can be cut out as cards, and placed in a small box or bag. Click on this link to access and print.  How you use them is up to you. Participants on one of HealthPad’s recent yoga and well-being courses - without looking first - took a card out of the bag, looked at the word, then replaced the card.  In the morning meditation session, they would focus on the word they had picked, and keep it in their mind to guide their thoughts and actions throughout the day. We have left a few lines blank at the bottom of the table so that you can add any other words that have a particular meaning for you.

Assess your stress 
This graph has been specially created for HealthPad by our own talented illustrator, Bex Hughes.  
Sometimes it's hard to put your feelings, or the intensity of your feelings, into words.  You can use this graph to prompt yourself to reflect on the level of your stress at any time in the day. For example, if you view yourself as moving into zone 4, you might decide to take a break - do some breath work, or use any of the techniques demonstrated in our app., which can be downloaded above.    
It's also a great tool to let others know how you are feeling, without having to go into lots of explanation. Put a pin in zone 6 upwards, and your colleagues or family may decide to give you space - or offer support.  
This works particularly well with children, or those who generally have difficulty in clearly expressing their feelings.    
Print out a copy here and put it on your wall.    
We'd love to hear how you get on!
