This guided meditation CD and MP3 download for caregiver stress is designed to offer relief, comfort and self care for caregivers who may be growing weary and disheartened from looking after a family member or friend in need of taxing levels of physical or emotional care. It is also useful for professional providers experiencing the occupational stress of caregiver burnout.
Regular listening to the guided imagery and affirmations on this program will deliver respite and relief, producing a centered, balanced state of mind, brightened mood, uplifted spirit, and restored energy and motivation to carry on - a total package of natural, holistic caregiver support.
Guided imagery is a mind-body technique that consists of healing words and hypnotic images, set to soothing music, to provide relief from caregiver stress syndrome. Repeated listening once or twice a day for 2-3 weeks ensures maximum impact.
Written and narrated by noted psychotherapist and guided imagery pioneer Belleruth Naparstek, and scored to the exquisite, immersive music of Steven Mark Kohn, this Health Journeys™ recording for caregiver burnout was produced by the Cleveland Orchestra's Bruce Gigax.
A separate track of affirmations provides shorter versions of the powerful caregiver support themes offered by the guided imagery in this program. This includes reminders of the caregiver's strength, resourcefulness and tenacity; a sense of being surrounded by protection, support and appreciation; an easing up of any resentment, isolation and anger that may have accrued; and an emphasis on the need for self-consideration and self care for caregivers. Affirmations are easier, faster and more convenient for some listeners, and can be played while doing other things, even driving.
Listen to an audio sample and see for yourself why this audio program is so strongly recommended by healthcare providers and counselors, not to mention it being such a popular word of mouth favorite among families and friends in need of relief from day in, day out caregiver stress.
