Publisher's Summary

There's no avoiding stress in life, but there's a better way to counteract it (which will also improve your sleep). In this brief educational piece, Jesse Israel, founder of The Big Quiet, shows you how meditation is the yin to stress' yang. 

Jesse was a successful music executive running his own label when debilitating anxiety and panic attacks forced him to step back and seek help. When he came upon meditation, it inspired him to switch gears in a big way. He founded The Big Quiet, a mass meditation movement that gathers thousands of people for large-scale moments of quiet around the world (including for Oprah’s 2020 Vision Tour with WW). 

This title is part of the Audible Sleep Collection, exclusive audio experiences created to invite relaxation and sleep. New and free for members.

Great explanation of why meditation aids sleep

and why meditation is a daily treat you can give yourself. Be sure to listen to Ease into Meditation as well.

Informative

Very informative. Been wanting to get into mediation but keep putting it off. This gave me a sense to start now since I better understand it.

Very well explained

Though this a very short audio book, Jesse Israel explained very well how helpful meditation is for stress relieving. Didn't know some of the stuff he mentioned in this audio book and happy to know it now. Overall, very informative and I am inspired to practice meditation.

Informative

This one was informative, not relaxing. It would have been better served with the rest of the informative sleep audiobooks into one longer listen instead of a bunch of little ones.

Not what I expected.

Really long 4 minutes. I was expecting information on how to meditate to remove stress. Not with this read.

Stressful

From the start, I felt stressed as he kept describing it. Then it just ended. Four plus minutes of winding you up, and then nothing!
