1. Leave the cause of your stress behind for a few minutes while you take your mind on a little vacation into the future. Imagine, for instance, that it is moving day and you are stepping over the threshold into your new home for the first time since taking possession. Or perhaps you're on that trip around the world you have always dreamed of taking. You know the one where you scale mountains, ford streams and enjoy dining at an outdoor Parisian café with the Eiffel Tower in plain sight?When you return to the present, you'll feel refreshed and renewed and far more equipped to handle whatever challenge you may be currently facing.
