Visualize Yourself Free of Stress with these Stress Relief Activities
It’s one of the best stress relief activities, but chances are, this skill was drummed out of you early in your scholastic career. As in, “Pay attention, stop that daydreaming!” or, later in life, “You’re not going to get anywhere just thinking about it, DO something, don’t be such a dreamer!”
Well, now science has caught up with us daydreamers. Quantum Physics now shows without a shadow of a doubt that thoughts are incredibly powerful. Thoughts are things. Form follows thought. And whether you want a peanut-butter sandwich or an empire, it all begins with the creation of an idea – a concept.
This is why it’s so important not to use your powerful imagination worrying about what might happen, which is actually creating things that will cause you trouble. Instead, try to think of things that could go RIGHT.
Try it now – start with something simple. Let’s stick with the peanut-butter analogy. Let’s say you’ve just made the perfect peanut butter sandwich. Fresh bread, freshly ground roasted peanuts, homemade jam – perfection! And you’ve just finished working out, and you’re HUNGRY!
Now, just as you’re carrying it to the table to enjoy, the cat runs under your feet causing you to drop this beautiful creation, and it lands open-face on the floor. And, you broke your beautiful plate.
How do you feel? Annoyed? Angry even – it was an expensive plate – now you have to wash the floor – and still hungry, but not in the mood to enjoy food anymore.
Let’s go back to same scenario with the sandwich, but in this version, your favorite song comes on the radio just as you sit to eat. The cat is happily purring on the couch in the sun, and looks so content you decide to join her. And the sandwich! Never have you tasted one so delicious! Each bite a perfect blend of flavors!
And how does that feel? Notice the difference? That’s the power of your imagination! Ok, now let’s assume you want to create a life you love, not just a sandwich!
To create a vision for your life, start by sitting writing what you want in the following areas:
Health, Finances, Career, Relationships, Self Expression, Personal Development, Spirituality
Just a paragraph or two on each subject is fine. Now, combine them to create an overall life view. You’re going to have to read this a few times a day, while at the same time conjuring up the feeling that this really is your life NOW.
I’d be the first one to admit this isn’t always easy. So I have a tip for you. Ready?
Record yourself reading this life view. Say it with feeling and conviction. Then you only have to lie down and get comfortable and listen to it once or twice a day, whether you’re ‘in the mood’ or not. Consistency is key, if you wait around for an inspired feeling before you visualize, chances are you won’t do it very often, and the things you want will be very slow in coming, if they come at all.
