Imagery as a mini-vacation
Take a 10-minute trip in your mind to someplace you enjoy. The place may be a quiet, peaceful scene or a fun activity. It may be a favorite place from your past or some place you have never seen but can imagine.
Color imagery is good for combating daily hassles and tensions.
Practice changing the tension color from red to blue with each daily hassle you confront. Imagine the color blue as your cue to relax.
