In spirit of Stress Less Week here at UON I went looking for some online relaxation files for students to use to take a few minutes out of assessments and exam preparation. There are hundreds of these all over the internet. If you type in Relaxation audio into search engines, you tube or iTunes search engines you will get a wide selection. You can also access some via the relaxation tip sheet on the counselling website at UON. There are also a few sites with multiple links on them, one of these is the University of Western Sydney’s counselling service. UWS have recorded a variety of different audio scripts for students to use for relaxation. There are short and long files, some using imagery, others using mindfulness and others using progressive muscle relaxation. They are available for free download on the UWS website.
What’s good about it: There are over 10 different scripts available of different durations so there is bound to be something that suits you.
What’s not so good about it: The recordings are all in the one female voice, so if you don’t like the voice then the site isn’t for you.
