“Relax your eyes, your cheeks, your jaw, and focus on your breathing. Now go down to your neck and your shoulders.”
“Make sure your shoulders are not tensed up. Drop them as low as you can and keep your arms loose by your side, including your hands and fingers.”
While you are busy doing this you should imagine a warm sensation traveling from your head to the tips of your fingers.
“Take a deep breath and slowly exhale, relaxing your chest, your stomach, down to your thighs, knees, legs, and feet,” he then said.
“Again, imagine this warm sensation going down from your heart all the way to your toes.”
You need to clear your mind from stress while you are practicing this exercise.
You need to think about two scenarios while you are doing this, he said in the video.
“One – you’re lying in a canoe on a calm lake with nothing but a clear blue sky above you. Two – you’re lying in a black velvet hammock in a pitch-black room.”
“At any time when you start thinking of anything else or you start getting distracted, repeat these words for 10 seconds: ‘Don’t think, don’t think, don’t think.’”
