SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium has today released new calming resources, including two guided meditation sessions, set to beautiful imagery of marine creatures.
Created for Melbournians who might be struggling with the current lockdown or those simply seeking a mindful exercise, the new Marine Mindfulness webpage aims to encourage relaxation and help promote a sense of calm.
According to multiple studies – including a 2019 study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health – observing live fish in an aquarium decreases anxiety, enhances relaxation and improves one’s mood.
SEA LIFE Melbourne is offering a 10-minute meditation session focusing on mesmerising moon jellyfish gracefully pulsing through the water as well as a 5-minute session featuring sleek trevally gliding through the 2.2 million litre Oceanarium.
Marine Mindfulness also features calming slow TV content, Yoga Under the Sea and coral colouring-in. Access the free resources here: www.melbourneaquarium.com.au/explore/marine-mindfulness
