Never make it past Chapter 1

I don't know why I ever try any other recording or podcast to fall asleep! I ALWAYS end up falling asleep before Chapter 2 even begins. Between the progressive muscle technique and the narrator, Colin Griffiths-Brown, I'm always transported to the land of restful sleep.

Very Effective

As someone who has struggled with anxiety most of my Life, the progressive muscle relaxation technique had been the most effective tool for me. This technique was introduced to my by a phycologist after a traumatic work experience. He had given me a cd with this technique to use. After years of use and with changes in technology I lost it. And searched for something similar. I was so happy to find this book on audio it was exactly what I had been searching for! It is extremely effective! I even have used it with my 11 year old son who and a stressful day and school. He said he has never felt so relaxed in all his life!! If you suffer from anxiety, please try this!! You must use it everyday for a month or so, like you would take a pill. It will help train your mind and body to relax in stressful situations and greatly help with anxiety.

Love the pronunciation of "Warmth"

This is a great system for relaxation and it has greatly improved my ability to work and stay on focus. Thank you. And for a smile my wife and I try to start saying "warmth" like the narrator.
