Wellness Tool #16: Guided Imagery
Guided imagery gives me a way to release negative thoughts and change my thought pattern while embracing my inner strengths and peace. I feel that this is important as it allows me to change how I view obstacles in my personal live, and allows me to come back to problems with a different inner energy to tackle them. Guided imagery helps enhance my quality of sleep as well, which is a very big personal goal that I have for myself since I’m usually busy balancing so many different things during the week.
