Easy Stress-Busting Strategy #3: Guided Imagery


Our third option for your stress-busting toolbox is Guided Imagery: a visualization process to reset your mind and increase your relaxation and resourcefulness. There are many ways to use guided imagery and a quick Google search will yield over a million options. Often a person listens to someone else guide them through the exercise. However, our version is one you can do yourself, customize to your preferences and it only takes a few minutes to feel the positive effects. Ready to give it a try? Please click on the attachment to view our Guided Imagery exercise.


Did you try it? Do you feel more calm and relaxed? This guided imagery exercise is very customizable and you can change it up every time or keep it exactly the same--whatever works best for you. The key is to be in the moment and notice everything.


If you missed them, please check out the earlier tips on Deep Breathing and Progressive Muscle Relaxation. Please remember that these are all strategies that are done safely when you are not focusing on another taskā€”like driving, for example. With the possible exception of deep breathing, which you can probably do anytime anywhere, these stress-busting techniques work best when you can grab a couple moments when you are available to focus.
