Having found visualisation so beneficial before I went into this task very enthusiastically and took great pleasure in snuggling on my comfy bed and beginning the process of imagining.
At first, when I imagined what I would look like I instantly thought of Holly Willoughby (in my head she is the perfect woman) but then I realised that imagining the unobtainable wasn’t the point of this exercise. I quickly picked something more realistic. I became a healthier, more groomed, energetic and more confident version of myself. I was so happy, speaking with confidence, bursting with energy, smiling, standing tall and generally looking and feeling fabulous.
What is amazing is the impact that simple exercise had on my activities that day. I definitely made healthier food choices. I also booked myself a long overdue hair appointment and pedicure. I went for a walk into town instead of taking the car. I allowed myself time to have a nap to boost my energy levels and I took some time during the day just for myself to really recharge my batteries and read a book. (Thanks to my husband for facilitating this!) I also felt instantly happier having done the task.
What remains to be seen are the long term benefits of today’s exercise and I would suggest visualisation has to be done regularly in order to have a powerful influence over your behaviour and overall happiness. The short term benefits of the exercise were immediately apparent to me and once again Happynesshub has helped me to lift my own spirits and take control of my mood and subsequently my actions.
My advice to you all is to indulge yourself in a little visualisation even if it doesn’t come naturally to you. It really is a fun thing to do and the benefits are considerable.
