As it’s the first week of the new year, we thought we would share a coping exercise with you that you may have not tried yet! This exercise, called visualization, combines imagination and relaxation to help you turn a stressful situation into a positive one in your mind. By practicing imagining the most positive situations, interactions, and outcomes, while simultaneously practicing relaxing your physical body, you can increase your self-esteem and confidence, and give yourself the boost you need to actually make these positive interactions happen. Try this exercise the next time you are having anxiety!
