रेलाक्सेशन टेच्निक़ुए

The title should read: "Relaxation Technique"
For reasons known only to blogger, and surely mostly to add to my stress and confuddledness, it has chosen to write itself in Arabic, and will not change to English.

Feeling stressed out? This technique has worked for me. Give it a try and let me know how it goes for you.

Picture yourself near a stream.

Birds are softly chirping in the crisp cool mountain air.

Nothing can bother you here. No one knows this secret place.

You are in total seclusion from that place called "the world."

The soothing sound of a gentle waterfall fills the air with a cascade of serenity.

The water is clear.

You can easily make out the face of the person whose head you're holding under water.

Why lookie there... what a pleasant surprise... It's the person who caused you all this stress in the first place.

You let them up... just for a quick breath... then ploop!...back under they go...

You allow yourself as many deep breaths as you want.

There now... feeling better?

I've successfully used a variation of this technique, though I imagined treacle rather than water as a rather poetic imaginary punishment for a colleague who is so excessively nice that talking to her is like being dunked in syrup. But not in a good way.
