When you’re busy or on the go, it can be hard to find a moment just for yourself. Instead of asking “Where can I go to unwind?” the question becomes “How can I unwind wherever I am?” Now you’ve got a great answer with our guided imagery podcasts that you can download or stream to any computer or mobile device.

 

Guided imagery is a meditation technique designed to tap into your imagination to create positive sensations that affect your whole body, emotions, and all your senses. According to the National Institutes of Health, studies have shown promising evidence that guided imagery may relieve pain, may help reduce anxiety in people with ongoing health problems, and may even serve as a valuable tool for people trying to quit smoking.

 

Our podcasts, produced by Health Journeys, include such specialized topics as:

 

Emotional wellness

 

Living healthier

 

Health conditions and concerns

 

These, plus 12 more topics, are available on kp.org’s “Podcasts” page. They’re accessible to both Kaiser Permanente members and nonmembers, so you can share this healthy resource with your friends. (Note: the Podcasts page may not display properly on all mobile devices. However, the individual links above are mobile-friendly.)

 

Each podcast is tailored to help a specific condition, but some conditions may be better addressed with different or additional forms of therapy. Talk to your doctor if you’re unsure of the best course of action for you.

 

So take a healthy break anywhere, anytime. Just tune in, sit back, and let a podcast help melt your stress away.
