How to Make the Most Out of Your Summer: Don’t let anxiety or depression keep you from experiencing summer the way that you want to

With all of the hustle and bustle of summer, do you sometimes feel like your mind and your body are going in different directions? You may be trying to balance work, kids, vacations– and then, where is the time for you? Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed, depressed, or anxious? Are these feelings keeping you from truly enjoying summertime? If so, step back for a few moments. I suggest  you look at your calendar and block out 10-15 minutes per day to sit still or recline, relax, close your eyes and take in some deep breaths.

Once you close your eyes… Imagine that there is a beautiful, comforting, healing light shining on top of your head. Relaxing the top of your head, your neck, the back of your head, your facial muscles, your upper, middle and lower back, your abdominal area, your shins, calves, ankles and tops of your feet, the soles of your feet and toes. Imagine your body releasing tensions, anxieties and stresses. Now, think about one of the most pleasant places that you have ever been to.  Take in three deep breaths and bring up the pictures in your mind of that wonderful place– your favorite place, the feelings it brings you, the thoughts. Notice what you see, what you hear, what you smell, what you are touching, what you are thinking, what you are feeling. Now take in 3 more deep breaths. Breath in what you see, hear, taste, what you are thinking and what you are feeling. This is your mini mental vacation that allows your body to relax to instill positive thoughts and feelings which can shift and uplift your mood. When you are ready, take in some more deep breaths, breathing in deeply– coming up to 1, another deep breath up to 2, another deep breath up to 3, a deep breath up to 4 breathing in everything you experienced, and then a deep energizing breath up to 5. This is simply a mini mental vacation that you can take any time when you are in a safe place to simply relax.
