Soaking in your tub can be a rejuvenating experience, especially after doing something strenuous. And there are many ways to make your soak even more relaxing. You can dim the lighting, use some candles, add some scented bath salts, drink a glass of wine and even read a good book. But there are times when, despite doing all this, you may not get the relaxation you crave. In such cases, you can try some visualization techniques in your tub.
What Is Visualization?
If you've read The Secret by Rhonda Byrne, then you know why so many people are converts to the idea of visualization. It's a simple technique and it works for literally everything. You can visualize more money, more happiness, better relationships, a better career, better friendships etc. The list is endless. Of course, keep in mind that you need to keep doing visualization constantly if you want to see results
Relive Times When You Were Relaxed
You can also use visualization to relax better. Just close your eyes and think back to all the times when you have felt most relaxed in your life. Focus on where you were, who you were with, what you were wearing, what you were doing etc. Try to relive that feeling of relaxation in minute detail. You'll find that this will also help you to feel more relaxed in the moment.
Imagine That You Are Relaxed Now
Imagine yourself getting more and more relaxed. How would it feel? Would it be a physical kind of relaxation? Or would you also let go of mental anxiety? Ideally, how would you want to feel in the moment? What burdens would you like lifted from your shoulders? If you can imagine how you would like to feel in minute detail, you'll find yourself manifesting that feeling now.
Make a Relaxation Collage
For some people, it's difficult to close your eyes and imagine things. It's easier to actually look at pictures on the wall and visualize in that way. There's also a technique for this. You can create a collage of images that make you think of relaxation.
Just go through a few magazines and cut out pictures that make you think of relaxation. Then assemble them on a piece of poster board. It doesn't have to be artistic. It just has to have a relaxing effect. And the idea is to put it up in a spot where you'll be able to see it from your tub.
Looking at beaches, sunsets, flowers, quaint cottages or gardens might give you the relaxed feeling you're looking for. However, the images that evoke relaxation vary from person to person. So go with what feels right for you.
