Purpose: Relaxation is soothing both to the body and mind, and helps to regulate emotions during times of stress.
During guided imagery students are encouraged to relax and to visualize an image that is likely to bring a sense of calm and relaxation. Often a script is used to help students to focus their attention on thoughts, feelings, sensations, sights, and sounds evoked by an image described by the teacher. The guided imagery exercise also offers a change of pace and can help to soften the mood of the class when needed.
