Listen to a sample of Ten-Minute Stress Manager
Students, business people, managers, individuals in high-pressure jobs, and individuals who have limited time for relaxation.
Use Part A, as needed, to prevent the accumulation of stress during a busy day. Use Part B to focus your concentration and access feelings of success and confidence. This recording may be used with Optimal Performance which emphasizes the principles in more depth.
Description of Exercises:
Each experience is ten minutes followed by ten minutes of ocean sounds and music.
Track 1, (Part A )– Ten-Minute Stress Release: You’ll focus on releasing the mental and physical tension of a high-stress environment. This tension often accumulates in your neck, shoulders, and abdomen, and results in headaches, backaches, indigestion, and deteriorating performance. You have the option of extending the relaxation period by listening to the ten minutes of additional music and ocean sounds which follow the relaxation experience. (20:09)
Track 2, (Part B) – Focusing: This experience offers you rapid relaxation. Then you’ll visualize your optimal performance and focus on self-confidence and satisfaction. You may focus on the optimal performance visualization for an additional ten minutes by listening to the music and ocean at the end of the experience. (20:10)

Contraindications and Precautions:
Although there are really no absolute contraindications for the use of this product, people who are severely psychotic or who do not want to at least try to follow the guidance offered will probably benefit little from listening. Listening is also not a substitute for needed medical care or psychiatric care for serious mental or emotional disturbance. In any undiagnosed potentially serious condition such as a head injury, again, there will not likely be any harm, but it would be wise to delay their use until an adequate diagnosis has been made. Although no such problems have been reported, people with seizures of any kind, or neurological or with severe neurorespiratory disease, should check with their primary care practitioner for suggestions regarding the use of this program. Likewise, if you are undergoing psychotherapy, share your use of these with your therapist, as he/she may want to integrate this use with your treatment. And, of course, if you are driving or using equipment that requires your full attention, do not close your eyes and do not listen to any program that you find causes you to become drowsy, distracted, or incapable of functioning safely. Programs designated as “Drivetime” should be used with these precautions in mind.
