This is one special technique to feel good, especially when things are very
bad. For example, you hate it at work, but for the time being, you have to go there
Although this technique is very simple, you might be a bit surprised at its
effectiveness. That is, what was previously horrible is now much better. What was
impossible seems it just might be attainable. And people who weren't very nice, don't seem
so bad after all. Of course, you can't change the world by changing your
thinking, but you can change your world.
- First image yourself having completed the unpleasant activity, for example, just having
arrived home from work. See, hear and feel yourself returning home and laughing heartily
at the funny things that have happened during the day. Of course, you don't know what they
are yet, but you do know what it feels like to be tickled by something. And you do know
what you might say to yourself - "That was funny!", etc. You also know what you
will see when you return home, and what you will hear and feel - for example, the feeling
of the steering wheel or the sound of someone saying, "Hello", or the engine
being switched off. Build up this experience using as many senses as possible. See yourself
laughing. Feel the pleasurable emotion. Listen to the pleasant sounds. Be
aware of this you - a few hours in the future - having a very enjoyable experience because
the unpleasant experience has finished.
- During the bad time recall yourself in the future having finished the unpleasant
- When you reach that point in time where you have built this pleasurable experience, for
example, having returned home from work, then recall the funny things that have happened
and have a good laugh. You don't know what they are, but they will be there!
In fact, whenever you want to feel good then remember with full mental vision, sound
and feeling this image of yourself having a good time thinking back on the funny things
that have happened, and feeling relieved that this has finished, at least for today.
