Visualization Exercise: White Sandy Beach
Imagine that you are resting on a white sandy beach and feel safe, calm, and relaxed as you think about the following:
Turquoise water and a clear, blue sky
The sound of soft waves as the tide gently rolls in
The weight of your body sinking into your beach chair
The warmth of the sand on your feet
A large umbrella keeping you slightly shaded, creating just the right temperature
Relax your face and let go of any tension in your forehead, between your eyebrows, your neck, and your throat. Soften your eyes and rest. Allow your breath to slow down and match the rolling waves of the water. There is no effort to be here; spend time just taking it all in.
Once this relaxation feels complete, imagine that you get up and slowly walk away from the beach. Remember that this beautiful place is here for you whenever you need to come back. Take your time and slowly open your eyes.
