Stress is an unavoidable part of modern life. But that doesn't mean it has to control your life. With the simple exercises on Stress Free you can learn how to reduce stress and take back control of your life. My name is Ken Goodman and over the past 20 years I've taught hundreds of people the skills necessary to overcome stress and anxiety. Now I want to share those very same skills with you. THE TRUTH ABOUT STRESS Most people think of stress as a thing. But it's not. Stress is your reaction to events happening to you and around you. The exercises on Stress Free teach you proven ways of reducing stress so you can minimize it's negative effects. I call them exercises. But I'd like you to think of them as mini-vacations - short trips you can take in your imagination, to quiet your mind and relax your body. These mini-vacations combine expert guidance with relaxing music and the sounds of nature to carry you away to a place of peace and tranquility. On one CD you get: • Six stress-busting relaxation exercises, including a quick-relaxation exercise for instant stress release anytime, anywhere • Three different relaxation techniques to help you combat the physical, emotional and psychological effects of stress: Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR), Autogenic Relaxation, and Guided Meditation. Plus, unlike most relaxation CDs, I take the time to explain to you how and why each relaxation technique works. So you can gain a better understanding of the principles behind them and use them more effectively in your every day life. STRESS FREE REALLY WORKS!

Stress Free has really helped me to relax, be still and fall asleep." - Curran, Television Stylist, CA "I love Stress Free! The relaxation exercises are easy to follow and the moderators are calming and soothing.

His feedback helps to reduce anxiety and is essential in preparing people for an optimal relaxation experience. I plan to offer the CD to my private practice clients and utilize it in the classroom with graduate level social work students.
