Day 3 – Stress-Reduction CD

Another day, another tactic.  I know at this point that sitting on a cushion and clearing my mind isn’t going to work.  There is just too much chatter.  Today I  listened to a stress-reduction CD.  Brian Weiss, MD has a little book on Amazon with lots of stars, Eliminating Stress, Finding Inner Peace which has with it a CD.  The book is a basic summary of the nature of stress.  Most of the reviews say that the best thing about the book is the CD that comes with it.meditation blog

Sitting at my desk in the early afternoon, I listened to the 33 minute CD.  Dr. Weiss’ voice was clear and very soothing.  It was easy to listen.  Occasionally, a bit of chatter would find its way in, but I tried to focus on his words.  After about 5-10 minutes, the CD was over.  Where did the other 25 minutes or so go?  Hmm.  I do feel refreshed and very mellow.  A little too mellow for the work ahead of me this afternoon.  If I can figure it out, I’m going to put it on my iPhone (without the zillion other songs in iTunes).  I want to listen to it lying in bed instead of sitting in an office chair.

The book includes a CD transcript.  But, I think I’ll stay in suspense about the other 25 minutes, and listen to it a couple more times before I read it.  Surely, I can trust Dr. Weiss; after all, he has been on Oprah.

As a side note, both dogs are sound asleep and appear to be totally stress-free.


  1. So it worked for your dogs… for you too it sounds like! I like your idea of putting it on your Iphone so you can listen to it in bed 🙂

  2. Well, looking at your stress-free dogs should be calming in itself, don’t you think? Here’s rooting you on towards becoming totally stress-free, Constance!

  3. That sounds like a great idea Connie- especially to listen to at night! I may look into this too. Also- did you draw the lady? Cute!!
