How does the program work?

One Session a Week

First, we suggest that you work with one audio session  and one homework session per week. Read the first few pages in the workbook. You’ll find a recommended schedule for making the program a part of your daily life. Listen to the audio at least three times during the week. Listen for skills and thinking changes that you can use immediately. Do the reading and homework in your workbook after listening to the audio at least twice.

Magic in the Writing

Second, keep a journal. At the end of the day, write about your feelings that day. Answer the question: Why did I feel that way? There is magic in writing. After completing the homework, review the example homework responses at the end of the lesson in the workbook. Compare your answers to the examples. This written exercise will help you gain insights about how your thoughts and actions might be causing some of your problems with stress, anxiety and depression.

No Skipping

Third, we ask that you not skip around from session to session. When listening to the audio, use the corresponding workbook session for maximum benefits. There are also supplemental DVDs that can be purchased with a video for each week's session.  Go through the program one session at a time consecutively. After you’ve completed the program, you may want to go back and listen to different sessions at different times. 

Learn to Relax

Fourth, the relaxation audio is a wonderful tool that you’ll want to use daily, preferably twice a day. It is not hypnotic. It is simple muscle relaxation combined with imagery. Many people who have problems with anxiety find it difficult to relax. This audio will enable you to create an automatic relaxation response.

Be Patient

And finally, be patient. You are going to notice some wonderful changes taking place in your attitude and personality in the next fifteen weeks as you move through the program, but positive life-changing skills take time to conceptualize and put into action. Once you begin to change, it becomes a natural process. Others will notice that you seem more confident, you feel less stressed and anxious, more relaxed, controlled and positive. You will learn to take control of your life in a way that you have never before achieved.
