    Hey Iain, There is much buzz about 'Mindfullness' here in Australia.

    I believe there are some great apps for phone and you tube videos.

    Ted talks are also very uplifting and motivating (and some are hilarious).

    Hope this offers some helpsmile

      I have really enjoyed the meditation vids funny thing they made me so relaxed I burst into tears the first time so that was obviously some sort of relief

    I cut Caffeine after 6 in the evening and I get as close to 8 hours of sleep as possible. I try not to obsess over how I feel all day long and if I feel a little anxious I make peace with it and let it pass.
