Visualization Relaxation

Visualization relaxation guides you to relax by using your imagination. Picturing a relaxing scene, such as a beach, forest, mountain, or other peaceful place is a key feature of this type of relaxation technique. These scripts allow you to take a mental vacation. Peaceful imagery can help you relax your mind and feel peaceful. Feel transported to a relaxing place where you can forget all your worries and simply relax.

Make sure to choose a relaxation script that suits your preferences. For example, imagining a lake may not be relaxing for someone who dislikes water. There are many types of mental vacations that you can try. Mountains, waterfalls, hiking, watching clouds, and imagining your own peaceful place of choice are just a few examples.


Use caution with visualization because this type of relaxation technique can worsen psychosis. Because those who are experiencing active psychosis (hallucinations or delusions) may find visualizing unhelpful, physical relaxation techniques are recommended as a more effective and safer alternative.
