FAQs

Many people create a separate “playlist” for each meditation, and for the “Quicktips & Simple Soothers” section, Introduction, and Closing tracks. That way you can choose exactly the tracks you’re in the mood for on any given day!
Publisher’s Note: We recommend keeping this audiobook on your night table, so you can just reach over and play either the “Sleep Easy Now” or “Your Present: A Half-Hour of Peace” meditations, and drift off to sleep...

A lot! We like to think of this revised and expanded 2nd edition as a “mini spa vacation” to soothe and replenish listeners… again and again.

The listener is gently guided through the soothing relaxation and sleep meditations. In addition, during the “Quicktips & Simple Soothers” section, Susie Mantell also shares lots of simple techniques and strategies for stress prevention, stress relief and stress reduction. We hope this revised and expanded 2nd edition will bring you deep relaxation, and effortless sleep whenever you need some…

We all have days when we're just so overtired, or overwhelmed, that we just don’t know what to do with ourselves. Susie Mantell’s “10-Minute Brain Vacation” carries listeners away-from-it-all into deep, easy relaxation. Then, after relaxing for a few minutes, her guided meditation re-energizes them to be ready to resume the day, refreshed and replenished—All in 10 minutes!

Susie Mantell shares a funny story about her decision to write the “10-Minute Brain Vacation:”
“When I was about three years old, my mother explained to me that if I didn't want to have bangs any more, I'd have to let my bangs grow longer. Well, at age three, that made no sense at all to me so — I cut them off! On an equally counterintuitive note, many busy people find that on hectic days, taking even a ten-minute break to meditate can actually add hours of productivity, clarity and inner peace. Over the years, clients have asked me to create a very quick meditation to help them through a long, busy day. Like most people, I could relate to that need!”

Author, Susie Mantell explains, “Throughout my twenty years customizing stress reduction, I’ve seen how 24/7 technology (and connectivity!) can stress out many men, women — and even kids. I decided to include these “30+ Quicktips & Simple Soothers,” drawing upon topics I’m asked about most frequently.” In addition to the three relaxation meditations for soothing stress relief and peaceful sleep, Mantell’s “30+ Quicktips & Simple Soothers,” offer techniques and strategies to prevent, reduce and relieve stress in ways that are personally meaningful and realistic for each listener, to gently restore balance.

Comfort for Caregiver Stress from the Author, Susie Mantell:
“It is a sacred trust ensuring the safety, dignity and emotional support of another. Having accompanied three immediate family members throughout extended illnesses myself, I understand the solemn responsibility—and some days the bone-wearying fatigue. Among these “30+ Quicktips & Simple Soothers,” I chose to include some comfort tips especially for caregivers, too.”

“The #1 stress-related complaint I hear these days is difficulty falling asleep, or staying asleep, then waking up exhausted, achy, and, understandably—a little cranky,” shares author and stress relief facilitator Susie Mantell. “Do you ever climb into bed at the end of a long day, close your eyes, settle in — and the movie in your head starts to play? Habitually sleep-deprived, overtaxed and depleted, we can become more susceptible to illness, depression, memory lapses, irritability, and even pain. Personally, I like having choices. So in this 2nd edition, I wanted to offer listeners a choice of two guided meditations to help them enjoy more peaceful sleep. The “Sleep Easy Now” meditation was created specifically to gently guide listeners into deep, effortless, restorative sleep. Your grandmother was right. At every stage of life, and in any state of health, a good night’s sleep really can work wonders.”

Listeners also include men and women of all ages and in all walks of life, who could just really use a great night’s sleep! The first edition of “Your Present: A Half-Hour of Peace,” (also included in this revised and expanded 2nd edition,) then became an Amazon bestseller in multiple genres. Originally known as a stress tape and sleep tape, later published on CD, through the years it’s has sold over 175,000 copies.
