Stress Management and Mastery: Relaxation Triggers

Did you know that you can create your own relaxation triggers?

How would you like to be able to fire off your own relaxation trigger whenever you needed it?

Here are 3 simple steps that will allow you to relax anywhere whenever you need it.

Step One

Picture yourself in a relaxing, peaceful, and stress free situation and place. For some people it is indoors, for others it is outdoors somewhere.

Create as much detail as you can in your imagination. Make it bright and colorful. Immerse yourself in the scene. See what you would see, hear what you would hear, feel what you would feel.

While you are picturing yourself in this peaceful and relaxing place, create an immediate trigger. This will enable you to instantly feel the relaxation when you need it.

Your trigger could be a snap of the fingers, a word or phrase, a mental picture, a song, or something else that works for you.

Whatever the trigger is, it should quickly and strongly remind you of the relaxing place.

Step Three

The nice thing about this exercise is I bet you will get to practice it very soon. We do not have to wait too long to face a stressful situation.

When you do find yourself in a stressful situation, simply fire off your relaxation trigger and feel the relief.
