60 words to help you achieve deep relaxation

Updated on March 6, 2010

The power of words - that's why the pen is mightier than the sword

I suppose I would refer to myself as a dreamer - I love to relax and imagine what it would be like to win the lottery, explore an exotic place or spend an afternoon with Connie Nielsen but I realise that perhaps not all of you can drift off into your own little world as easily as I can, so I have tried to compile a list of useful words that may help you to improve your own state of relaxation..

Here goes:

warmth, sun, relax, peace, quiet, love, sea, happiness, love, bathe, holiday, sleep, laugh, enjoy, smile, excitement, open, honest, kind, gift, life, heavy, pleasant, waves, kindness, touch, heat, walk, patience, feel, sand, water, smell, breathe, sweet, body, free, breeze, stroke, healthy, light, mantra, kiss, ease, alive, intense, drink, appreciate, caress, warm, hear, dance, concentrate, uplifted, still, transformed, transported, down, slowly, drift

All done without the aid of a dictionary or thesaurus.

Now all you have to do is relax and imagine your own scene - one of my favourites is lying on a beach.

I lie down, relax and let the warmth of the sun caress my body. I can feel a warm breeze waft over me and hear the water lapping on the sand...

You get the idea. Wow - I'm there already! Think of your starting sentence, lie back and drift

Try it, enjoy it, let me know your techniques - best wishes - Max

      For me it is not words but sounds that make me relaxed. Something like this is amazing to shift me into my world of dreams

      Thank you for your kind comments - I'm pleased that you both have some kind of relaxation methods - I also use a mantra - I have a very stressful job and sometimes at 4.00a.m. it's the only way to block things out. I found a beautiful cove in Menorca a couple of years ago. I think of that quite often as a start to my meditation.

      Love to you both - Max

      Hi, I actually do do a mantra, before I go to sleep, but it is a Tibetan word, that I read in a book once! I have no idea what it means! they said it was best just to make the sound, and not know!, but I think I will give your words a try, it does make more sense!! thanks Nell
