Virtual Calming Room
Guided Imagery is a convenient and simple relaxation technique that can help you quickly and easily manage stress and reduce tension in your body. Guided imagery can quickly calm your body and simultaneously relax your mind. It’s pleasant to practice, and not overly difficult to learn. And it can help you to de-stress in minutes, but can also be a useful strategy for maintaining resilience toward stress during difficult times.
Please use the link for the CHF Virtual calming room to reap the benefits of guided imagery.
