Publisher's Summary

This audio edition includes guided meditation exercises from the book and an exclusive 20-minute Stress Less Guided Meditation at the end of the audiobook.

Foreword by Mark Hyman, MD. Preface by Andrew Huberman, PhD.

In Stress Less, Accomplish More Emily Fletcher shares an ancient meditation technique designed for busy lives. The focus of the practice is stress relief, mental clarity and improved productivity, so it's perfect for the fast pace of modern life. This style of meditation was developed specifically for people with a lot of demands on their time - those with busy jobs, lives and families - and so it has been designed to work anywhere, anytime. All you need is somewhere to sit, a little training and a few minutes to yourself. 

Throughout the audiobook, Emily explains what meditation is, how you do it and the many exciting ways that it can change your life. Stress Less, Accomplish More destigmatises meditation for the average person, making it attractive, understandable and easy to implement for all. This audiobook has a very simple message: do less - without the stress - and accomplish more.

Emily Fletcher is a leading expert in meditation for high performance and has taught meditation to executives at global corporations like Google, Barclays and Viacom as well as busy parents, NBA players, Oscar winners, entrepreneurs and everyone in between.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our Desktop Site.

*no tools included

I get that this is popular, but after 5 chapter of basically indoctrination theory put in practice there’s maybe 30 mins of telling you how to do the Z technique. So thanks, but I’m not really interested in a 5 hour sales pitch for the three M’s. I came to learn how to be less stressed, but in the 3 real days I listened to this book, there were only 2x2min instructions, in 4x1 hour chapters, on how to actually do any of the three M’s. You book actively tells people to make meditation, mindfulness and manifesting part of their daily routine, but you don’t seemingly include any practice in your chapters.

The promise you make in your first chapter about giving people the tools to actually do Meditation, Mindfulness and Manifestation, is seemingly left unfulfilled as at chapter 5, almost 5 hours in. So, at 5 hours in and no tools described, but a very long sales pitch for your website now in my mind, I feel like you’ve wasted my time and broken your promise of providing tools. So how am I going to justify another 5 hours?

What you’ll get out of this book.

I’m not sure why the bad reviews saying this book doesn’t teach you meditation, when it actually does?
1) Emily starts off with a lot of mindset Techniques which really helped me understand not only the benefits but also when my mind wanders through a meditation practice that it’s okay and what to do to centre my thoughts again.
2) she then takes you through the 3M’s of the meditation practice. I found this the most helpful to help me understand the phases of going into meditation and coming out of. I feel like finally I’m mediating for the first time.
3) Finally she finishes off with a couple of different guided meditations at the end of the audiobook.

Late night infomercial

Undoubtedly there is considerable benefit to be had from meditation. If you want to learn how to do it from this book then you will need to adjust your expectations. Littered throughout the author encourages through her own and others 'Chicken Soup' testimony to do the full ziva online course... it just never stops - every chapter is an advertorial. Don't expect this book to be anything but an advertisement for the full Ziva online course.

Now let me go and take some delicious breaths of air while I recover from the hours spent listening, hoping the book would reveal more... it did reveal I was stupid enough to expect that there would be actual content.

Too much of repetition and unnecessary information

This +8Hrs long book can be made into 1Hrs without losing any value. I think the technique is good but the book is overloaded with repetition and unnecessary information

Truly amazing

For anyone looking to get into meditation this book is probably one of the best I’ve ever read. It breaks it down and makes it easy to understand so that we don’t need to meditate as if we are monks. It’s more for real life, real people in the real world. Thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anybody

Highly Recommended.

I was so glad Emily narrated this book it was like learning from her face to face. I was drawn to this technique because of a couple of talks I had stumbled across by Emily Fletcher. (Freely available on Youtube). You can learn what makes this technique different, and why it is a priceless tool once incorporated into your day. Leah

What a waste of time..

I honestly thought it was looping the first chapter. Same thing over and over again. I feel far more stressed. I’d like my credit back.
