After Completing Your Assessment When you are complete, look back at your results- If most of your answers are on the side of “Don’t Agree” your score suggests an overall stress or dissatisfaction with your current state of health and overall wellness. We recommend you work on the initial components of Breathe and Relax. Select some shorter recordings from those areas, to build a lasting relaxation response which will allow you to progress to other more complete recordings. If your assessment shows most of your answers as on the side of “Agree”, it suggests you are in a balanced overall state of health and wellness. You may choose to select from any and all of the recordings on the website.
