Hot Springs Sleep Relaxation - with equalized volume

This hot springs sleep relaxation will describe relaxing outdoors in a natural hot water spring in the mountains, and then guide you to drift off to sleep in a warm, cozy cabin.

This sleep relaxation is based on the original "Hot Springs Relaxation" but features a sleep ending rather than reawakening. The audio in this version has had the volume equalized from beginning to end, so if you are listening to more than one podcast, you won't experience such a jump in volume when the next track starts.

Dealing with Agoraphobia - Part 2 of 2


Agoraphobia can be overcome by challenging the fears and learning to believe that you are safe, even in places that used to trigger severe reactions such as panic attacks.  Defeat agoraphobia once and for all with this relaxation exercise. 


Start with the easiest item from your list of feared things. Once you are able to go through all five stages with your anxiety remaining below a 5 out of 10, choose the next item on your list. Gradually you will work your way through all five stages with feared item after feared item...until eventually you will conquer every fear on your list. No more agoraphobia!
