    Mindfulness has been shown in clinical trials to be an effective way of reducing stress. It is a form of focused awareness that helps to prevent the runaway thinking that gives rise to physical and emotional hyper-arousal. The two meditations in this audiobook help us to develop this transformative quality of mindfulness and to practice acceptance of our present-moment experience in a non-judgmental way - in particular, with their emphasis is on learning to "be comfortable with discomfort".

    I've listened to this a few times at bedtime and each time it has put me to sleep before reaching the end. His voice is relaxing (although you may not think so from the sample) and does help you to relax. I only wish there had been more than two relaxation exercises. I will probably tire of listening to them over and over.

    In this eight part radio series, Dr. Weekes speaks with the listener intimately and compassionately about how to overcome anxiety, frustration, phobias, and depression. She coaches the listener on how to pass through panic and reach a place of strength and optimism.

    I haven't read the books but others seem to have high regard for them. Maybe if I had read them first this series would have had more meaning. I didn't get much out of this. A lot of repetition because it is from a radio show so they recap all of the past shows. The basic take away I got from this book is to accept your anxieties and don't worry about them. It focused mostly on the problem and very little on the solution. I'll try listening to it again to see if I get more of it the second time.
