Math Survival Guide: Dealing with Math Anxiety 08
"Commitment leads to action. Action brings your dream closer."
|Here's the order: |
Your face... your neck... your shoulders... your arms... back to your
shoulders and upper back... your torso (chest, abs, lower back)... your
caboose... your legs... your feet.
It takes practice to leave a section relaxed after you’ve worked through
it. As you go through this process, you should feel yourself starting to sink
further and further into your bed or chair. Once you're all mushy and relaxed,
just be still and enjoy.
This is another one that's good when you have twenty minutes or so to
really relax. Lie down or sit somewhere comfortable (sit up straight). Again,
make things quiet or put on some mellow instrumental music or nature
Working from your feet up, you are going to concentrate on making parts
of your body really heavy... and, when you are focusing on an area, I want you
to imagine all the blood in your body rushing to that area and making it sink.
First, your legs... Imagine all the blood in your body rushing to your legs
and feel them get heavier and heavier. Don't push on them or move them at
all. You can't move them, they are too heavy! When you feel the heaviness
and the warmth of the blood rushing through them, move on... Next, comes
your core (your torso)... Then, your arms... When your body is heavy, imagine
your head feeling cool and refreshed. Imagine a cool breeze blowing across
your forehead and through your hair. Just lay and enjoy.
