How to relax yourself in 3 minutes
I will share 2 tricks today with you. These tricks I use at any time and in any situation that can make me nervious or anxious and where I need to relax as quickly as possible. You can use them not only in the dentist chair, but, for example, before meeting with important people, giving some presentation, or after some stressful event - like, perhaps, arguing with someone. So basically after or prior any situation which makes you nervious, anxious and stressed out.
1) 'The Blue Hat' trick. This trick I use when I am sitting in the dentist chair and some work needs to be done (not just the check up). I've read about it many years ago and I always use it.
2) 'The Duvet' trick. Use this trick when you need to relax quickly and when ideally, you can close your eyes for few seconds.
Remember the time when you go to bed. When you climb into your comfortable bed in the evening (or morning for some people). You feel sleepy. You pull the duvet higher to cover your shoulders and arms, and you turn onto your side. You love this feeling. The heavy wave of immediate relaxation takes over you and quickly you are falling asleep.
Ok, now you need to re-create the same feeling really fast.
You close your eyes, quickly remember laying in your bed before falling asleep. FEEL THE DUVET being pulled higher, FEEL TURNING ONTO YOUR SIDE (without actually doing it), and FEEL THE WAVE OF SLEEPINESS AND RELAXATION takes over you at instant. That's it. The more you do it, the quicker you can relax! I love this trick. Try it and let me know how you like it.
