This book is designed to look at stress management in an entertaining, yet effective manner.
The 16-minute relaxation CD that comes with the book instructs listeners to systematically tighten and then release the tension in their muscles. One track includes a wake up and the second track can be used if someone wishes to fall asleep. This technique is called progressive muscular relaxation.
Relaxation deepens with practice. After a while you learn to relax away tension as it arises, before it becomes overwhelming.
It is easier to cope if one avoids getting too tired, cranky and hungry. A quick relaxation break can help avoid the experience of fatigue and negativity.
