Publisher's Summary

After instructions as to the appropriate position and situation in which to listen to the audio you are given, you will be encouraged to slow down your breathing mechanism and allow yourself the time to release any tightness or tension in the body. Once the breathing rhythm and a general calm has been established you will be guided through a progressive relaxation procedure, focusing on each part of the body in turn, releasing muscular tension and easing stress while maintaining awareness of a gentle breathing rhythm. With the music and instructions you will drift peacefully into deeper and deeper relaxation.
Once the stage by stage relaxation of the body has been completed, you will be encouraged to imagine yourself lying peacefully on a tropical beach and move into an ever deeper state of relaxation, calmed and pacified.
Finally you will be brought gradually back to a state of wakefulness, rested and refreshed.

Simple but effective

Written and read by Hugh Fraser, this is a very simple, but very effective, relaxation audiobook. It is divided into two parts: the first half for relaxing during the day, and the second half for encouraging deep and refreshing sleep at night.

Hugh Fraser's soothing voice leads you through the relaxation, to the accompaniment of gentle, very unobtrusive music, and the sound of soporific waves breaking on the shore in the background. I don't know how it ends, as I have never yet got to the end without falling asleep - could there be any better recommendation?

I bought it beacuse of Hugh Fraser

Hugh Fraser is a wonderful narrator. I fell under his charm of course in the films with David Suchet and was so pleased to discover the chappie was also doing audible books. I often choose books because of their narrator simply because some of my favourite books end up being killed, or at least my joy is diminished by a narrator. Hence I often choose the narrators of the books I'll be listening next, but not always of course!
