A mindfulness exercise video to help you identify, understand, and ride out urges and cravings for addictive, compulsive and harmful behaviours.

By noticing thoughts and urges without acting on them, you can learn to surf urges as they come up until you have mastery over the behaviour.

This practical 12 minute exercise (also available as an mp3) combines a breathing exercise with a body scan and mental self-assessment, with a professional counsellor guiding you through the process.

Producer: New Heights Wellbeing Featuring: Naomi Goodlet
