Relaxation exercises are easy to learn and implement and can be remarkably effective in addressing stress, decreasing anxiety, and all kinds of phobias and other similar concerns.

Take a few minutes out our your busy day and just relax. Audio files are most effective when you listen with headphones, this may minimize any distractions. Turn the phone off, close the door and allow yourself a few minutes of doing and being nothing.

DO NOT listen to these mp3 files while driving a car or participating in any activity that requires your full attention.

The ME Resource Lounge is dedicated to providing a safe and supportive space to learn, connect, grow and share. My intention is to provide resources that allow you to delve deeper into who you are, who you want to be, and what’s getting in your way. Often in our lives, we wake up one day and wonder How did I get here? ~ This is not what I intended for my life. Whether it’s lack of self confidence, anxiety, depression relationship challenges, limiting beliefs, or self sabotage, it’s time to work through it, understand its non-beneficial impact on your life; and then choose to move forward with a decision to create a more authentic and passion filled adventure.
