Get comfortable in a nice chair, and slowly count from one to three. At the count of one, do one thing: "roll your eyes up to the top of your head."
At the count of two, do two things, "close your lids on your eyes and take a deep breath."
At three, exhale slowly, relax your eyes, and concentrate on a restful feeling of floating.
Do this for about 30 seconds to a minute.
Count backward, from three to two to one and open your eyes.
Continue to do this for 3 minutes.
