Abuse and its aftermath are tough topics to focus on, they can easily get one tense and anxious. Sometimes we just need to sit down, breathe, and center for a while, to get relaxed and focused again - or simply if we're battling insomnia or nightmares. Nature scenery, meditation, and guided imagery are helpful for this purpose because your body doesn't know the difference between real and imagined world, so imagining a peaceful walk in a forest can make you feel revitalized, centered, calm, peaceful, and refreshed, - as if you really took that walk. If you're not a fan of guided imagery - just watch some of the nature/music videos. Sea turtles are pretty good. Click on the audio link or video thumbnail to listen/watch.
