Relaxation and Inducing a Sense of Well-Being

Try finding a quiet place and sit on a comfortable chair with arms. Rest your arms on the arms of the chair. Sit erect with your feet flat on the floor. Do not cross your arms or ankles. You might try turning on some relaxing music.

1). Breathe in deeply through your nostrils and allow the air to fill your lungs.

2). Exhale slowly though your mouth, letting the air flow out.

3). Pause at the end of the breath, neither breathing in nor out. This pause lets your mind come to quietness.

4). Repeat breathing in and out. Watch the breath as it goes in and comes out each time. You will start getting more and more relaxed.

Now that you are feeling relaxed, mentally think about what part of your body might still feel tense or tight. Let this tension go. Try relaxing your forehead and jaw.

It is time to use visual imaging. Think about a time that you enjoyed and you will find yourself feeling better as you think about those wonderful memories. Plan for the future and visualize yourself looking and feeling better and healthier.

I hope and pray this tip will help someone today.

You have some great advice on your page, Viv. I am a firm believer in positive afermations, and that we have more control over our own minds than we think. Your example of meditating one a very happy memory is a perfect way of changing fellings and attitude. The mind is so complex, and happy thoughts, laughter, and warm feelings release certain chemicals in the brain.
Of course, the good Lord is very instamental in helping someone accomplish these things :-)

Great recomendations!!!!!!!
