Using Mind Imagery for Stess Relief
Using mind imagery for stress relief is a highly effective method for calming our whole being and achieving stress relief . Since we simply cannot avoid being bitten by the stress bug, we may as well take control of its nasty effects and achieve soothing stress relief using mind imagery.
 
In our extremely busy world that we live in, encountering stress is inevitable, but not uncontrollable. When you feel the tensions of the day have taken over your whole being, the muscles of your body feel as though they're all in knots, when you don't want to talk to or even be around your loved ones, let alone anyone else, when your whole being is fatigued, you know that you've been bitten by the stress bug!
 
The effects of that bite have left you with a tinge of a headache threatening and warning you that if you do not get stress relief soon, you're going to be suffering from a major, full blown, red alert throbbing headache. It's time to take a stress break and bask in the total relaxation that only stress relief can bring.
 
One very effective method that is highly successful in calming our whole being is using mind imagery to allow the day's stress build up to flow right out of our bodies and tranquilize our mind.
 
One area of relaxation is in nature. Nature does wonders as a calming resource. Just becoming part of of a majestic natural scene for awhile can give you the serene sense of belonging to a much wider universe beyond the piques of everyday stress.
 
Let's utilize our mind imagery now. My favorite place in nature is on a warm tropical beach of paradise and solitude. Stay with me as I walk you through a mind relaxation exercise in my natural paradise.
 
Feel the ecstasy of lying on the sun kissed sand of a white colored seashore upon a comfortable fluffy beach towel, the sand molded to your body as a down filled pillow molds to your head. Just feel the sun lightly dancing along your body as it does its pirouette, warming you from the outside in.
 
Putting a smile on your relaxed face as you have your eyes closed and ears open, listening to the surf rolling towards and gently colliding into the shore in a rhythm that you have down pat in your memory, hearing the birds as they make their way around the beautiful beach, some flying and singing overhead, others running back and forth and to and fro with a light pitter patter of footsteps in the same rhythm as the waves of the tide.
 
Feel the gentle tropical breeze caress your body, sometimes from side to side, other times from toe to head, picking up a few strands of your sun lightened hair and doing an elegant waltz with them which lightly tickles the the relaxed muscles of your cheek, then moves along to search out another dance partner such as a sun baked portion of seaweed resting on the sand, awaiting its arrival.
 
Feel every muscle of your body release any lingering tension, flowing out through your fingers and toes with delightful warmth and peace. Feel the moment; memorize the sensations of your relaxing and calming trip along the shores of tropical stress relief. Ahhh, what a wonderful feeling!
 
Think of your most favorite place to be in nature whether it be on a snow capped mountain with tall evergreen trees with pristine snow covered branches surrounding you, or up in the branches of a several hundred year old sturdy oak tree over looking a myriad of wild flowers speckling a meadow.
 
Once you've chosen your spot, let your imagination carry you along the route of peace and serenity by taking in every glorious detail, and melting the stress away the next time you've been bitten by the stress bug and crave stress relief!
