Stress Relief Tool – Visualization (Imagination)

Visualization is a fun way of getting stress relief using your imagination.

Visualization is a fun way of getting stress relief using your imagination. To use this technique, stop what you are doing, close your eyes and let your mind go blank. Picture yourself in an environment that is relaxing to you, such as sitting on the beach, floating in a swimming pool or taking a walk. Imagine yourself interacting with your surroundings. For example, if you imagine yourself outside taking a walk, feel the wind on your face, smell flowers or search for seashells.

Stay in your relaxing space as long as necessary, although you will likely feel a calming sense within the first minute of this exercise. Come back to yourself slowly, open your eyes and keep the feelings of relaxation with you. Tell yourself that you are now calm and relaxed.1

Give visualization a try the next time you need stress relief.
