I’m the first to admit that I’m a terrible meditator, so when I read about a form of meditation that sounds like something I can do, I always like to share it. Here are two:
1) Positive Mental Imaging: Basically, if you’ve had a stressful day, imagine yourself back in the stressful situation. Recreate it in your mind, but make it funny. If you had an altercation with someone turn them into a cartoon with a giant clown nose and huge feet. Go through all your stressful events and make them humorous.
2) Muscle Contraction/Relaxation: This one actually involves movement, which is totally up my alley. Lie down with eyes closed. Start at your head and work toward your toes contracting each muscle group (face, shoulders, biceps, triceps, abs, quads, hams, calves, feet, toes, etc.) for two seconds. Go up and down the body three times. Then stay for a couple deep breaths.
