Publisher's Summary

A practical relaxation programme to settle the mind and unlock higher performance and productivity.

You need to relax. No, really, you do. 

Life is busy, full of things competing for our time and attention, and it’s easy to believe that the best way to get things done is just to keep going—as fast as possible. But that just isn’t true. In fact, taking time to re-centre ourselves can have tremendous personal and professional benefits.

In this concise programme, sports psychologist Dr Josephine Perry and yoga for sports specialist Lexie Williamson will guide you through tried-and-tested relaxation techniques designed especially for busy people—which, let’s face it, is all of us. 

Optimise your downtime, boost your performance, improve your productivity and wellbeing—power down to power up.

Good,Not Great

-Cons
Mainly aimed at athletes,followed by office workers.
No chapter titles
Narrator is not good,especially for leading relaxation exercises,their voice is not relaxing,changing speed throws off the breathing exercises,if you can't keep up,no suggestions are made so it tailors you.
Quite a bit of visualization,so not aphantasia friendly
Technical names for exercises is hardly given,so finding an exercise led by a different (say, in a podcast/YouTube) & better narrator will be difficult.
Not passionate about sports, then no alternative is given for certain practices

-Pros
Short exercises
Usually includes examples

Perfect to power down to!

When life is hectic this is the perfect antidote to literally helping you get your breath.
You can listen back to back or dip in and out based on what you need. It is definitely bed time listening for me.
I’d get this for anyone who needs to relax, rest and revive.

Soothing and the right length.

I have used the sleep breathing exercises to relax at bedtime and find them just the right length. Lexie’s voice is so soft and soothing and just right for relaxation.

Useful tips and easy to listen to

Found this an easy listen. Useful tips that are easy to implement. Narrators are easy to follow and offer good advice throughout. Probably not quite as life changing as I hoped but worth a listen

Good and simple

I enjoyed listening to this audiobook.
Combination of simple exercises which could be used on daily basis… I really want to implement them into my daily routine. And then I would be able to comment on their usefulness and effectiveness. So far it’s looking good….
But - and it’s not about content of this audiobook - I can’t comprehend why chapters in this book don’t have names in book menu (?) and it would be so helpful if I could select exercises from there ! This audiobook is Audible production and I wonder what’s producers were doing because clearly they missed opportunity to create 5 star product.

Would recommend

Easy listening and good that it is in sections, if you’re short on time. Breathing exercises are relaxing and easy to follow. Would definitely recommend this audiobook

Practice makes perfect

Decided to listen to the whole audible first and then go back to specific exercises in sections.
Great to have the bookmarks to easily access different areas I want to focus on at a given time. Exercises are easy to follow and as it is audio you can rewind and keep doing them over and over again with the coach… yes, that is what I have been doing!
Would definitely recommend.
