During visualization exercises, the mind can’t tell the difference between a real performance and one that is imagined. Neither can the body. Most important, when you visualize yourself, you see yourself in the present, As if you would see it through your own eyes, not watching through the eyes of a spectator.
Stress is part of everyone’s daily life. When you’re living with depression or bipolar disorder, the levels of stress and anxiety can quickly climb. Learning how to relax can relieve that stress and anxiety. And visualization is a great relaxation technique that can help with that.
