Using Your Imagination to Deal with Stress

Part of the Healthy Mind and Body All-in-One For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Feeling stressed? Want to calm down quickly and easily? If you take the stress-producing thought or image and replace it with one that’s relaxing and calming, chances are that you’ll begin feeling much better. Here’s how:

  1. Find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed for a few minutes, and get comfortable, either sitting in a favourite chair or lying down.

  2. Think of an image – a place, a scene, a memory – that relaxes you.

  3. Use all your senses to bring the imagined scene to life. Ask yourself: What can I see? What can I hear? What can I smell? What can I feel?

  4. Let yourself become completely immersed in your image, allowing it to relax you completely. Feel better now?
