When you're too busy to relax, just take Time Out from Stress by listening to this audio. In just ten minutes, you can relax tight muscles, calm anxieties, and reduce pressures to a more tolerable level. Brief but regular relaxation is the best thing you can do to safeguard your physical and mental health. The first part of the program guides you along a beautiful forest path, walking down a gentle trail to the side of a placid lake nestled in a pristine valley. There you indulge in the meditative practice of breath-counting and enjoy autogenic suggestions of warmth and heaviness designed to ease every muscle in your body. The second part of the program takes you on a brisk hike up the path to Lookout Mountain. The meditative practice of step counting puts your mind in an "alpha state," the brain wave pattern most conducive to relaxation. As you fantasize reaching the mountaintop and feasting your eyes on the vista, you practice the age-old Yoga technique of the passive gaze.
