Too Simplistic

When I'm being eaten alive by stress in the workplace, I need specific techniques and tools to keep my sanity.
Instructions to "Take a deep breath and think happy thoughts," followed by ten seconds of dead air is not what I'm looking for. At first I thought my player had malfunctioned.
I'm not saying the author isn't correct, but it's too simplistic to be of any use to me.

Short and sweet

I'm a fan of Rick Hanson's work. He always manages to add information he hasn't used before. I usually go through and bookmark the meditations so I can easily access them later.
