Going to my “Happy Place”

Most of us have heard the expression, “Go to your happy place”. As a licensed counselor and a consistent user of visualization, I’m here to say that it works.
Not many people realize the power of our thoughts. Visualizing something postive when you are upset, sad, scared, or mad (any negative emotion) can calm you and brighten your mood. It’s important to have a happy place to mentally go to in trying times.
One of my favorite happy places is pictured above, the North Shore in Honolulu. I’ve been blessed to visit a military buddy that lives there a few times. The scenery, sand, warm sunshine, and sounds of the waves bring peace to my mind. Do you have a happy place as well? I’d love to hear about it.
