Lunching today with my friend Phylis included a discussion of the truly impressive effect of two techniques we both find helpful: mindful deep breathing and positive, optimistic visualization. Breathe in to the count three and exhale to the count of six. Repeat. Repeat again and notice the calming effect. Feel it.
Visualize yourself flawlessly delivering that presentation. Know it. Remember your best day ever and visualize every detail of it if you find yourself in a stressful situation like an MRI tube. Phylis, a recognized expert in Epilepsy (http://epilepsytalk.com/), discussed research showing these powerful tools can actually lessen the severity of a seizure. Now that is impressive.
Sending the power of mindfulness your way today,
