3 Fundamental to building a sense of calm, life balance and resilience is the ability to take time out – if even for a few moments – and to turn within and consider satisfying responses to various daily challenges. To build this ability we need to familiarise ourself with some of the fundamental concepts that form a foundation to our reflective practice. This short program is designed to introduce you to some of these foundation concepts whilst guiding you on a short journey of reflection which will help create the mental space needed for your regular personal reflective practice. HOW TO USE THIS PROGRAM The length of this exercise is about 3 minutes. The pace of the slide changes has been designed to encourage you to take time to reflect, thereby gaining more from this exercise. Simply ensure that this program is running in full-screen mode and that the sound is turned on. Then click this screen and the presentation will run automatically. I hope you enjoy your reflection, Mandy
