If you are an entrepreneur, you are probably sometimes stressed to the gills when:

  • dealing with sales & clients,
  • dealing with vendors,
  • hiring or managing quality employees or independent contractors and,
  • keeping your business running smoothly

Often times we don’t take care of the most important person in the company, ourselves – The Boss.

It’s been proven time & time again that the brain thinks more clearly & is able to solve complex problems when it’s stress free & in a relaxed state. This is why just as you are falling asleep or waking up from your sleep you will often remember something you forgot, or come up with a “brilliant” idea. This happens to me all the time.

Taking much needed time out for yourself each week also allows you to remove yourself from the situation so you can think more clearly about any business problems you have. If we are too close to the problem (as most entrepreneurs are), we get too emotionally involved making it much harder to solve the problem.

Then there’s our health we have to deal with because emotional stress is what creates disruption in the body causing poor health & you certainly can’t run your company properly if you are all stressed out & your health is starting to fail.

Besides exercising (working out), meditating is THE most highly recommended activity for alleviating stress. In fact neither should be eliminated from our weekly routine.

For years I’ve tried meditating, but either always fell asleep, or always felt like I was doing it wrong, so I never meditated.

It’s not that I didn’t want to, it’s just that it seemed too hard. So it wasn’t until I came across this program last year that I changed my mind about meditation. What I read blew me away because I didn’t think it was possible.

The program said it would help the brain meditate for you just by listening to the CD.

When I read that, I jumped at the chance to get all the benefits of the meditation without having to force myself to empty my mind. In fact I was very excited at the possibilities this could have for my stress & my health.

So, I signed up for the free CD. I mean what did I have to lose, right?

Once I listened to the free CD I was still excited enough to order the first program & I waited for my package to arrive.

Once it did & I pulled out the book that came with it, I never looked back. The book in & of itself is very interesting & had a lot of scientific information in it, but it’s the meditation CD that matters the most of course.

Now whenever I’m feeling stressed I know that if I just sit down in the chair & listen to the CD, I relax enough that the stress melts away. Even my sister has commented on how much calmer I seem. I also went through a major stressor in my life several months ago & I know that it would have been a lot worse had I not had this CD to fall back on.

Just so you know, I have TONS of so called meditation CDs all over my house & they all sit in their case. This one is the only one that I could actually feel results with.

So if you are an entrepreneur (even if you aren’t) & you need to de-stress, I highly recommend this program. No need to commit, just order their demo by giving them this code if you order by phone… 371631

My only caution to you is DON’T start the program if you are planning a road trip & driving long distances. Make sure you start this program when you know you are going to be settled in your own home. Book your road trip for a few months after so your body gets accustomed to the changes in you.

If you travel a lot, hopefully you are traveling by plane. I made the mistake of starting the program & then a week later driving to my sister’s. I didn’t know how powerful the program was & my trip wasn’t a great experience for me.

I’ve been on the program since August 2009 & I’m still going strong.

Contact me if you have any questions & when you do end up getting it, shoot me an e-mail after a month & let me know how you are doing. I’m really interested.

Hope you have a stress free day!

    So I want to update this post as I continue to read the book that came with the CDs. It’s all very fascinating.

    So it turns out, not only do the meditations help with stress, they help with improving a person’s memory & the ability to solve problems.

    I know based on my own experience that when I’m stressed by something, I lose all sense of control over my brain which for me is my biggest asset. In fact, THAT is when I make decisions that end up causing me more pain or regret down the road. My brain actually becomes like a cloud that is fuzzy & all I am doing is reacting instead of stepping away from the problem & thinking about how to solve it.

    That comes from the “fight or flight” response part of our brain which some of you may know doesn’t help anyone one bit. Even when we need to flee a dangerous situation, if we aren’t thinking clearly, we will probably just box ourselves into the dangerous situation.

    So according to scientific study done when people used these meditation CDs, these meditations help to relax the brain so that we can solve the problems we have & make clearer more non reactive decisions.

    I know that whenever I do my meditation I almost always feel way more relaxed afterward. In fact, I got so relaxed at times, that I had to have a digital voice recorder near me because new business ideas & things I forgot to do at the office would keep popping into my head, LOL, so I had to make sure I captured them all.

    Hope this helps & you are having a “stress-free” lovely day!
