Publisher's Summary

When you're too busy to relax, just take Time Out from Stress by listening to this audio. In just ten minutes, you can relax tight muscles, calm anxieties, and reduce pressures to a more tolerable level. Brief but regular relaxation is the best thing you can do to safeguard your physical and mental health.

The instructions in the first part of the audio guide you through five-finger exercises, a simple relaxation procedure you can practice at any time. You assign or "anchor" each of your sources by touching each finger in turn. With this method, relaxation is literally at your fingertips.

The second part of the audio takes you on a fantasy trip to a charming country inn. You imagine checking into your warm, cozy room, enjoying the glowing warmth of the fireplace, and curling up on a featherbed beneath a soft quilt. This ten-minute visit can seem like a weekend in the country with all your cares left far behind you.

Short but oh so sweet..

There are half a dozen short audio books by Matthew McKay on Audible.. I have them all, and while they are all gems, this one is my current favorite.. although only ten minutes long, the half of this title that takes you on an imaginery visit to a peaceful country inn is a masterpiece.. your imagination paints the visual and tactile / sensory images of the most tranquil, comforting place you could ever imagine.. I wish I could actually go to the place he describes.. my words don't begin to do it justice.. Jerry Landis, who reads all of McKay's titles, has THE perfect voice for this kind of relaxation recording.. I've listened to it dozens of times, usually the first thing after climbing into bed at night.. it's just simply a beautiful piece of work.. breathe deeply, lie with your eyes closed, and let McKay float you away on this ten minute journey.. if you decide to get any of his short audio books that Audible carries, make it this one.. although they are all excellent.. McKay shows tremendous compassion, love, and understanding for his stress and Anxiety-suffering listeners, and for that he should be congratulated..

Still good

I purchased this book almost 2 years ago and it has remained on my player almost constantly. I recommend the pair's other book "Relax Your Body" a bit more. For my personality the various techniques and rationale work better.
