A part of being an active participant in the 21st century; which began on January 1,2001 and will end on December 31, 2100; is being overwhelmed and bombarded with all types of images and information, at an ever increasing rate. Almost anything you want to find information on or learn about is right at our fingertips, whether it be via the internet, cell phone or television. It is no wonder, that so many of us feel overwhelmed and tired. I know with the recent Spring Forward time change I have not been able to go to sleep before midnight, but I wake at 5:00 or earlier, where I would normally wake at 7:00am. I should also add, I loveeeeeee to sleep. There is nothing better for me as a person.

Well, I might have something that will help you, since it has begun to help me. I was given the opportunity to review a meditation CD by Suzanne Jessee, Mental Health Coach. Suzanne Jessee is a distinguished figure that has helped many women reduce the stress in their lives. She herself was once a victim of stress and panic disorders and after being hospitalized with depression she decided to do something about it! She became inspired to help other women that were feeling as she did. She started researching panic disorders and the prevention of panic disorders. She came up with Escape Anxiety which is made up of seven R’s: Relaxation, Realization, Re-education, Rehabilitation, Reinforcement, Responsibility, and Reassurance.

Take a look at her video

This CD is presented in two parts:

Part I
The Morning Time Cognitive Meditation and Imagery session is designed to help you start your day with a positive attitude about yourself and your life.

Within minutes of listening to your ME TIME Positive Day therapeutic session, you will have a positive frame of mind and be ready to greet your day with energy and optimism.

Part II

The Night Time Cognitive Meditation and Imagery session will guide you step by step into a physical and mental deeply relaxed state of being. You will then be guided to mentally lay the events of your day and the challenges of your tomorrow to rest so you can calm your mind and have a peaceful night’s sleep.

The CD is a combination of imagery meditation, self hypnosis and relaxation response. There are a total of three tracks, two with vocal coaching (morning and evening) and one without, beautiful peaceful music.

My Opinion:

Even if you are not a meditation type person, you should give this CD a try. It really does help you to have a positive attitude to start out your day. The evening meditation is something that you will find yourself able to easily adapt to, given the chance. Even if you don’t think you can benefit from this CD, I’m certain that you know someone that can. If you would like your own copy you can:
