Health Tip: Use Focused Imagery to Relax

(HealthDay News) -- Focused imagery is a relaxation exercise that can help you relax and deflect stress.

The Cleveland Clinic suggests how to practice focused imagery:

  • Visualize a peaceful, relaxing image to help you tune out stress.
  • Go to a quiet spot where you can relax without interruption.
  • Get into a comfortable position, either sitting or lying down.
  • Close your eyes and breathe deeply a few times.
  • Imagine paradise in your mind, whether it's relaxing on a beach or fishing on a lake. Imagine all of the sights, sounds and smells.
  • Frequently imagine this paradise, especially when you feel stressed. Perhaps play an audio tape that reminds you of your image.
