What is visualized breathing?

ANSWER

This is a type of relaxation technique that may help you during menopause or at other times in your life. For visualized breathing, find a quiet, comfortable place and close your eyes. Breathe slowly and let your imagination fly. Picture relaxation entering your body and tension leaving your body. Breathe deeply, but naturally. Visualize your breath coming into your nostrils, going into your lungs and expanding your chest and belly. Then, visualize your breath going out the same way, each time filling you with more relaxation.
