Can you imagine waking up each day with a clear mind and visualize no stress in an approach without fear of your stress grabbing you and shaking you around?
Visualization, sometimes referred to as guided imagery, involves creating a detailed mental image of a desired result, such as a day, no let us think bigger, a life without overwhelming and debilitating stress.
Visualization is one of the most powerful tools that you can use to see what will happen in your future. It is your own personalized mental movie of your future
Visualizing will help you become more determined to do what is necessary to live your days without your stress eating you alive. Used prior to meditating visualization will help you meditate more effectively and frankly will change your life. Now, let’s get started.
Let us visualize together what that would look like for you.
Start to Visualize No Stress
Sit comfortably in a quiet place. Close your eyes and take some deep breaths. Clear your mind and imagine yourself working, but instead of the stress overwhelming you, imagine your stress drifting right past you.
Did you notice, I did not ask you to visualize yourself meditating first, just visualizing the result of not being overwhelmed by your stress.
The point here is not to focus on solutions. It is simply to visualize your future outcome because you have a daily, repeatable meditation practice that works.
Visualize no stress in every detail about you.
What are you wearing?
What are you saying and to who?
What room are you in?
What is in your environment?
Locate things in your visualized environment that you can touch or feel. This will strengthen your visualization.
When you are feeling stressed, you can visualize a peaceful scene as a means of escape. The scene can be literally anything that you want. Think about what makes you relaxed and visualize that you are in that time and place doing that thing.
Again, you want to be sitting comfortably in a quiet place for this exercise. Create a blank canvas of your mind and take a few deep breaths. Decide what it is that would make you the most relaxed and begin building the imagery in your mind.
Visualize every detail of your relaxing scenario. The more detail you can build into your visualization, the more effective the technique will be.
This is a technique that can be used at any time you felt stressed or anxious. It takes some practice. You can take a few minutes to visualize your stress-free scenario anytime you are in a stressful situation to bring yourself some peace and put you on track to be productive again.
