For example, try guided Imagery 

  • Guided imagery is like directed daydreaming. It basically involves imagining a pleasant experience that you've had, for example a walk on a beach or watching a sunset.
  • Guided imagery ideally uses all the senses: vision, smell, taste, touch and hearing. Pleasant experiences are totally personal. So is the image that works for any particular person. The more senses involved in recalling the experience, the better.
  • The basis of guided imagery is that the body doesn't discriminate between images and experiences that are recalled, and those that are experienced in real time. Pleasant experiences result in relaxation and the lessening or elimination of stress and other tension.
  • Guided imagery can be practiced individually, in a group or with a guide.

Relaxation CDs are available in most bookstores. Consider listening to a CD before buying it. Finding a guided imagery that helps you is as individual as the imagery itself.
