This popular meditation for stress relief consists of four different exercises each designed to produce a balanced state of mind, uplift mood, and restore a sense of focused calm. Each stress relief meditation exercise shows you how to meditate in a different way, resulting in having something for everyone.

The first meditation to relieve stress is guided imagery for mastering anxiety providing simple, but powerful, self-soothing skills to last a lifetime. The second exercise is a guided meditation that offers evocative images designed to pump up natural feelings of love, safety, and support. The third is a deeply relaxing walking meditation for the fidgeters among us who are too wired or agitated to sit still and therefore cannot combine typical forms of guided meditation for stress. And finally, for those who prefer brief ideas and images that they can use quickly and efficiently, we offer our popular affirmations for stress relief, to use at any time, even while driving, folding laundry or working.

This skillful and artfully produced approach for relieving stress by noted expert and guided imagery pioneer, Belleruth Naparstek, and composer Steven Mark Kohn, makes these meditations a frequent choice for patient referral by health care providers and mental health professionals, as well as a popular word-of-mouth favorite among friends, as it helps most people one way or the other.
