Power up Your Life & Make Stress Work 4 You: excerpt # 7

Relaxation Technique

Sit or lie down.  Close your eyes and start paying attention to the sounds and noises around you without trying to identify them.

Repeat mentally the following suggestion: "From now on and all through his session, I will remain conscious of all the sounds and noises around me, and they will even help me to deepen my relaxation.  Even the noises that could occur suddenly will not make me jump, but will rather help me to relax further."
Start focusing your attention on your feet while imagining that you can feel and see them with your mind's eyes.

After a minute or so, redirect your attention to your breathing, and imagine that with each exhalation, as the air comes out of your lungs, your feet become heavier and heavier.
Repeat ten times.                                                                                                                      
Now, direct your attention to your calves and repeat the same process
Proceed the same way for your thighs, buttocks, hands, arms, shoulders, etc.

Suggestion: aim for total relaxation.
