This technique is like meditation and really helps a lot to release stress. This is basically creative visualization. Here you create a mental space of your choice. This place is completely your personal space and you can decorate it as you wish. Not only that, but you also can install a big screen on your mental space, which can help you to take you to any past or present situation. Use any future technology, any advanced technology which is still not known to mankind. It is based on your imagination only. You can do whatever you wish to do there. No one is there to restrict you in any way in your mental space. That is completely your world. Whenever you feel like going back to your mental space, you can go and spend some time. Whenever you feel frustrated or stressed, this mental space always will be the one to comfort you.
