Tracks To Relax – Guided Meditation Podcast
iPads. iPhones. Androids. Laptops. 60 inch TVs. Work. Commutes. Layoffs. House moves. Screaming kids. Husbands. Wives. Divorces. Families. Even just writing this list is stressing me out! Stress is all around us, 24/7 – heck, if your reading this then you must be on some kind of device right now (don’t click off though…not yet!).
The American Medical Association has ‘noted’ that stress is the basic cause of all human illness and disease. That’s insane. That puts it up there with alcohol, prescription drugs, illegal drugs, cigarettes and crappy food.
We need to chill the F out.
But its tricky. It can be all but impossible to get away from this stress. It never really goes away. We can just try to ignore it and deal with it as best we can. Try and calm down once in a while. Try to get some really good, deep, restful sleep.
That’s what I needed. A proper nights sleep. Relaxation. It was like I had forgotten HOW to relax.
I honestly can’t remember what triggered me to try looking up this stuff. I must have had a bad day. I can’t even remember what I typed into search on Spotify. But somehow, the Tracks To Relax Guided Meditation Podcast found me.
Obviously, I was dubious and skeptical the moment I heard the word ‘Meditation’. I’m not a hippy. I can’t cross my legs. I have no desire to explore my subconscious. I don’t give a shit if I breathe out of my nose or my mouth.
But I gave it a shot. What the heck.
It was pretty cool.
A guys voice began telling me to relax. There was quiet, peaceful background music. Very tranquil.
I rolled with it and played along. And as I did, I began to feel myself relaxing into the bed. He continued describing a journey down an escalator, describing the lighting, describing a walk down a corridor, down another escalator – all the while reminding me that I was feeling more and more relaxed.
And – incredibly – I was.
I didn’t want to move a muscle. I knew I could, but I didn’t want to. I didn’t want to spoil that feeling of genuine relaxation. I think I actually melted into my bed a little bit.
It felt good. Like….really good. This wasn’t hypnotism. At worst, all this guy was doing was using the power of suggestion. And he was using it very, very effectively.
The half hour episode came to an end. I pulled off the headphones, rolled over and I don’t even remember going to sleep. I woke up the next day feeling like I had actually had a decent nights sleep.
My wife is a stress ball. 3 kids 1st Grade and under, a demanding immediate family, running a home based business. She is constantly on the go.
I told her about the podcast. Normally the ultimate skeptic, she surprised me by immediately saying “ok, I’ll give it a go”. She lay down, put the headphones on, I turned out the light, I left her to it.
An instant convert. She now listens to the escalator and corridor episode every night. She loved it. I genuinely didn’t think she would, but she loves it (and, frankly, she needs it).
So be like me. Be like my wife. Chilled the actual F out and find 30 minutes tonight to try this podcast out. You might even like it.
