It was a great discussion. Josh and Jen discussed Jen's fitness background, the thinking behind mental strength, definition of hypnosis, hypnosis stage shows, how to relax, using positive suggestions prior to sleep, setting goals, visualisation, examples of how you'd use these relaxation techniques with strength-training, being 'in the zone'; and a whole lot more. If you're ready to find out what Controlled Relaxation is all about, make sure you watch this one.
