Home > Health Library > Stress Management: Imagery Exercises
The methods described here help you relax, relieve stress, and feel better.
Close your eyes and imagine one of the following:
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.
