Set the timer for 12 minutes.

Read this whole article first.

Then, close your eyes.

Picture your favorite place in the whole world.

Imagine you are there, right now, with your favorite people in the whole world.

Or all by yourself if you prefer.

Think about the smells.

Think about how your head feels,

How your body feels,

How your brain feels.

Focus your mind on the way you’re feeling right now.

Whatever needs to be done will be fine without your help.

Trust me.

Keep focusing.

For the next 9 minutes, just think about how you’re feeling.

Are you smiling yet?

Open your eyes.

You can go on a 12 minute vacation from now on whenever you want.

You don’t have to write right now.

It can wait 12 minutes.

Can you?
