Caring for others can be stressful being cared for can also be stressful one way to reduce stress is to use your imagination to picture a relaxing place in which to take a mental vacation for a few minutes at a time

Try: #in a quiet place sit or recline in a comfortable position and close your eyes imagine a place that is beautiful comfortable and safe this place can be a place you’ve visited seen a picture of or are just imagining it can be inside outdoors or in a fantasy location #while picturing the place think about details such as sounds smells sights the temperature sun or wind on your skin etc #as you think of the scene relax your muscles and take a deep breath continue to take a few more deep breaths and relax further #spend some time enjoying the inner peace of the place you’ve created let the tension of your day drift away into space stay in the inner place for as many moments or minutes as you like #you can return to your inner vacation spot as often as you like for peace and relaxation
