SUCCESSFUL STRESS MANAGEMENT
Audiobook: Relax: Escape from the Stress in Your Life
A full 30 minute progressive muscular relaxation session guided by the hypnotic voice of Norman Brook. Additional narration by Emma Thurston.
This recording is designed to teach you to relax, to escape from the stress of everyday life, forget your worries and just let go. To get you to relax we are going to ask you to perform a series of exercises. When a muscle is contracted and then relaxed it returns to a state that is more relaxed than before the contraction took place. To achieve a totally relaxed state we need to perform a series of exercises that contract and relax all the muscles in your body. Eventually only a few seconds will be needed to achieve full body relaxation. Take time to learn this and like self directed relaxation the results can be very rewarding.

All life is fragile and each day is a journey into the unknown, giving rise to fear and anxiety.

Audiobook: Relax: Forget Your Worries and Let Go
A full 30 minute self directed relaxation session guided by the hypnotic voice of Norman Brook. Additional narration by Emma Thurston.
This recording is designed to teach you to relax, to escape from the stress of everyday life, forget your worries and just let go. Self directed relaxation aims to relax each of the body’s muscle groups while emphasising slow, easy breathing and visualisation of the tension flowing out of the body. The objective of this training is to gradually help you to reduce the time needed to achieve complete relaxation. While initially it will take several minutes to go through these instructions, with some practice greater and greater relaxation should be achieved in less time.
Eventually only a few seconds will be needed to achieve full body relaxation. Take time to learn this and the results can be very rewarding.
