Publisher's Summary

Today's world is charging at a breakneck speed. People are working over 12 hours every single day, catching extra minutes of sleep in the metro, and completely giving up on the antiquated notion of time to spend with their own kids. There are people in their 20s looking twice as old as they should, who neglect every single aspect of their lives but their careers.

And one person out of four dies from cardiovascular disease, caused mostly by unhealthy eating, a lack of physical activity, smoking, consuming too much alcohol, and worthless junk food, which clogs their arteries.

This book will teach you how to step away from noise, relax, and recharge your batteries so you have enough left in you to control your life. Here are some of the things you'll learn:

  • Why rituals create your life and how to develop a proper morning routine to ensure a calm mind.
  • Three main stress management techniques for recharging that you're probably not aware of. They can make you well-rested or, if you disregard them, extremely exhausted.
  • How to get away from highly stimulating surroundings to recharge in peace. If you live in a city, you must hear this chapter.
  • How to let go of negative, nagging thoughts you can't get out of your head. You don't have to carry them with you all the time.
  • Seven powerful habits to reduce stress. And no, I'm not talking about obvious advice. You'll discover how to exactly reduce stress with lesser-known tips.

This is your chance to find out what the hard science says about how to become more relaxed. You too can finally recharge your batteries and regain control over your life. Learn how.

    "Good but not the first book"
    What made the experience of listening to How to Relax the most enjoyable?

    I lessen to his books to get information and he and he gets his points across quickly and accurately and then moves on to the next subject. That alone makes it easy for me to pay attention and not drift off.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Relax?

    For me it was the part about meditation a lot of other books talk about it but don't give you enough instructions on how to start doing it.


    Have you listened to any of John Gagnepain’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes I have lessened to him perform the other books in martin meadows series and this one was abut the same not that that is a bad thing he is a clear easy to understand speaker.


    What did you learn from How to Relax that you would use in your daily life?

    The importance of setting a morning routine.


    Any additional comments?

    Comprehensive and easy to digest information without the long historical background info that puts many people to sleep.
