Publisher's Summary

Think of five things you're grateful for and five things you're looking forward to today - one can even be simply the sun on your skin. Soak in these good feelings and use this frame of mind to set an intention for your day.   

Jesse Israel was a successful music executive running his own label when debilitating anxiety and panic attacks forced him to step back and seek help. When he found meditation, it inspired him to switch gears in a big way. He founded The Big Quiet, a mass meditation movement that gathers thousands of people for large-scale moments of quiet around the world (including for Oprah’s 2020 Vision Tour with WW).   

Guided by leading experts and personalities in wellness, morning meditations are brief listens focused specifically on helping you start your day on the right foot. They don’t require any previous experience - they're easy to get into and designed to help you take a moment each morning to simply check in with yourself.    

This title is part of the Audible Sleep Collection, exclusive audio experiences created to help you fall asleep, stay asleep, and wake up in the right morning mindset. New and free for members.

Meditation for Gratitude

Great way to start the day. This is a guided meditation with no guiet time to delve deeper. That said, it's positive and sets a nice tone for morning reflection.

Good to set your intention for the day but...

I found the music/violins to be a bit off putting. The narrator did a very nice job, but for me the music is just a little too shrill and not background enough to really relax into this meditation. Just my opinion though!

A Good Mindset

After listening to this I realized that I had become mindless and habituated in my morning routine. I had I forgotten these basic fundamental principles that I used to practice. This 6 minute talk /meditation is want I needed to help me set a good mind set for the day.

Short but sweet

A great reminder to be Grateful . The guided meditation is short. Doesn’t require a lot of thought. However, it plants a seed to notice just the little things to be grateful for.

A wonderful way to start the morning

I really enjoyed this. A wonderful way to start the morning with a focus on gratitude, and hope for the rest of the day. I think this will be great to share with my children.

Nice starter

Nice starter for beginning of the day. This should be an everyday exercise. Being great full and having a purpose.
