The two exercises I liked best were the loving-kindness and the visualization exercises. I like the loving-kindness one because it is quick, can be done at any time, and it does not ignore negative emotions. It is a good exercise in taking negative emotions and making them positive ones. Also, I have a hard time forgiving people and even though I have not perfected this exercise I believe in the long run it will help reduce my stress levels by allowing me to more easily forgive. The visualization exercises I like because I find them to be easy and I feel an immediate response. I try to visualize myself accomplishing tasks. I have been using this a lot before my fights and training sessions. I feel more confident and relaxed then I did before I applied these exercises.
