The Red Balloon that Floats Away Stress

  1. Find a quiet space, sit comfortably and imagine a red balloon.
  2. Slowly inhale, allowing each breath to relax and rejuvenate you.
  3. Slowly exhale, filling the balloon with thoughts of stress and tension, then release it into the sky.
  4. Repeat for several minutes, until you feel calm, centered and positive.


Our sincere thanks to Julie Graham for her audio meditation “Healthy Monday Refresh” that we used as the basis for this exercise.
