Call to mind a time when you felt that all was right with yourÂ world. Â You can close your eyes andÂ visualize this time or gaze at a reminder toÂ cue the events and circumstances surroundingÂ the event.
Some peopleÂ journal to flesh out the memory while othersÂ imagine telling the story to a good friend orÂ eager listener. Â Choose theÂ approach that allows you to re-perceive the experience deeply… and in great detail: Â How old were you? Â What time of year did itÂ occur? Where did it happen? Â Who, if anyone, was there with you? Â What exactly transpired?
In solitude and silence, allow yourself to bring the memory to life NOW. What were the internal and external characteristicsÂ that made it a memory that you wanted to hold onto… to make part of your BEING?
When you need a well-being pick me up, bring up some of those memories that exist inside of you.
