Guided Imagery

Guided Imagery

The goal is to visualize yourself in a peaceful setting.

  • Sit or lay on your back with your eyes closed. You may also want to place the palm of your hands over your ears to block out noise distractions. Allow your elbows to relax on a table or desk.
  • Imagine yourself in a favorite, peaceful place. The place may be on a sunny beach with the ocean breezes caressing you, swinging in a hammock in the mountains or in your own backyard. Any place that you find peaceful and relaxing is OK.
  • Imagine you are there. See and feel your surroundings, hear the peaceful sounds, smell the flowers or the barbecue, feel the warmth of the sun and any other sensations that you find. Relax and enjoy it.
  • You can return to this place any time you feel anxious.
  • Action: locate a spot away from other avatars and practice guided imagery.
