A New Meditation Technique?

Whew! What a busy week, and next week is starting out just as busy! I must recharge this weekend. Fortunately, a friend emailed me with a stress management technique yesterday that he swears will help. I have no idea where the idea originated, but it’s certainly…unusual.

Just in case you are having a rough day, here is a stress management technique recommended in all the latest psychological journals. The funny thing is that it really does work and will make you smile.

1. Picture yourself lying on your belly on a warm rock that hangs out over a crystal clear stream.
2. Picture yourself with both your hands dangling in the cool running water.
3. Birds are sweetly singing in the cool mountain air.
4. No one knows your secret place.
5. You are in total seclusion from that hectic place called the world.
6. The soothing sound of a gentle water fall fills the air with a cascade of serenity.
7. The water is so clear that you can easily make out the face of the person you are holding underwater.

Oh sure, it sounds nice, but I suspect there might be some…aftermath. I haven’t tried it yet, but you’ll probably hear or read about it if I do :)

Today’s tip celebrating Serentipity:
If you’ve got a computer cable disaster under your desk (say it’s not just me) and you happen to have an old-style telephone tucked away–you know, the kind with the coiled handset cord?–you can use the cord to corral the messy cables into a neat bunch. Or you can just leave them in messy wad, like I do. :)

Wishing you all a most wonderful weekend! Rest and recharge!

  1. I have a hard time relaxing! When I tried this, and I promise I did, I could not get my arms and legs to stop from flailing around. I felt like I was going to fall off the rock. :( Can I picture myself laying in a hammock instead? :)

  2. That’s a great meditation tip! I would’ve had 4 bodies in the stream yesterday. Too much evidence.

    Love the phone cord tip. I’m actually going to get an old rotary from an antique store so when we do our retro game room when we finally move I can step back in time and leave the 21st century upstairs! :-)

  3. I usually don’t get stressed. For some crazy reason I’m able to distance myself from most of the things around me .. or I just have faith that it’ll all work out in the end. :)

  4. :-) I heard that one a long time ago but forgot about it – love it!!!

    I hope busy means good busy for you!

    I love all your tips here & at Serentipity! BTW, just got the name – I think – a take on this name here or am I imagining. I am slow! 😉

  5. I love guided meditations with imagery. You can drift off to another place and time – great for letting go of the stress.

  6. totally digging your new blog, Cammy. I’ve had time to read but have been a lurker. That will change, though (I’m not one to keep my thoughts to myself for very long!)
