How to Unwind - Guided Relaxation Meditation
Lie on your back, arms resting at your sides, feet slightly apart, eyes closed.
Breathe in and out evenly, such as this: 2 counts breathe in; 2 counts breathe out; continue for about a minute.
Now, stop counting breaths and beginning at your feet and working up to your face, alternate contracting and relaxing your muscles.
Next, visualize lying in a peaceful setting - perhaps on the radiantly warm sand at the beach.
Let your body sink, sink, sink into the surface and as you do, let stress flow away from your body - down into the deeper layers of sand.
Stay awake while your body relaxes; enjoy the moments of peace and relaxation.
After 5 to 15 minutes take a deep breath, stretch out and stand; relaxed, refreshed.
