I yearn to travel and just relax somewhere far away. Somewhere closer to nature where the sky is filled with bright stars that I can see. A place where the world just stops rushing through and just slows down. A place where I can feel connected to everyone and to my purpose. A place where my body can rest and heal and my mind can refresh itself. But I cannot wait for this. Life seems to keep moving, and quite fast, the load of each day feels heavier. What is a person to do?
A little mental vacation seems like the plan for now. These trips can be so powerful as to actually make you feel refreshed, relaxed and happier. Why don’t you join me….
Close your eyes breathe deeply in and out, count your breathes, One… Two …. Three …. Four. Keep counting till you get to ten. Relax your body, forget every deadline, work, presentation, everything that has taken up illegal residence in your mind for too long. You are the landlord of your own mind, choose your tenants carefully. Now imagine the happiest moment that could possibly happen to you. It could be an event that you would love to happen to you, it could be a state or destination (Physical or abstract) you have been hoping to get to. Where is this moment taking place? Is it at home, or somewhere else. Be present in the moment, step into the moment as if you are stepping into a movie. Participate in the conversation of the moment, experience the voices, the conversations, the emotions, the feelings. Allow your facial expression to match the one in this imagination you have created. Make this moment as real as it can be to you. Allow yourself this pleasure of living in this perfect happy moment, indulge in it.
When you are done with this lovely trip, open your eyes and welcome back from your vacation. I hope it was lovely.
