a tickle of words to create smiles

Did you know that the imagination can be used to bring people into well-being? It is true! The procedure is simple. All people need to do is to tap into recent positive memories and re-experience them in their imaginations.

Studies have shown that by reliving your positive memories in your imagination, your body will experience all the benefits from it; however, to reap the greatest benefit from the experience, you need to use every aspect of your memory. You not only need to visualize the positive experience but also every sensation from the past positive experience.

What did you feel, hear, smell, taste and touch during that experience? If possible, evoke these positive memories using images and music. It can enhance the experience for you. Meditate or simply close your eyes as you breathe deeply and imagine being in that place where you experienced happiness, love, joy, fun and bliss. This will in turn lower your heart rate and blood pressure; furthermore, you will begin to feel the joy you experienced before.

This is similar to counting your blessings and having an attitude of gratitude, both of which are also great for your overall well-being and spirituality. When you put this practice of using your imagination to relive positive memories into your daily routine, you will see how it will positively affect you over a period of time. Consider writing about this in a journal/blog or drawing about it in your art journal to capture this practice. Imagination and well-being can go hand-in-hand; and, it can become a part of your daily self-care routine. Enjoy.
