Discover relaxation in pleasant old memoriesWe as human being live rather a carefree life till we are married, have children and then the realities of life and family responsibilities dawn on us. It is this during this phase when life often tends to becomes stressful at times and people start thinking of different ways to relax which may be music, meditation, outing, party, meeting friends etc. But are there any other means to discover relaxation?
As we pass through different stages of life like childhood, teenage, adulthood etc we keep on filling our mind with pleasant memories on the way. You must have felt that sometimes unboxing and getting lost in old golden memories of your life can literally relax you and take away all your worries for a while.
So next time when you are stressed unwind yourself on your bed, switch off the light, close your eyes, press the rewind button and allow yourself to drift into those pleasant past memories and scenes of your life.
Visualise the events of your childhood days and fun you had with your family and friends. Recall memories of your school days.
Take a virtual visit to the place where you were born and brought up. Visualise the house which you lived in, lanes you used to walk in and markets you used to visit along with your friends and family.
Rediscover that top of the world feeling you had when you got admission to the career course of your choice.
Think about that unique feeling of financial independence you had when you landed your first job. Imagine about all the shopping you did with your first salary for your family members.
Take your mind towards those fun experiences you had along with your friends during your college and hostel life, movies you watched, dinner parties you had.
Recall that beautiful experience when you first met your spouse.
