Visualization to Reduce Fear When Going Out

Getting out of the house and facing the unknown migraine triggers that await you in the sights, sounds, and smells of a new environment can be a challenge.

Either we opt not to go out at all, or we are so filled with fear of the weather, light, or temperature that we hardly enjoy ourselves.

Reducing the fear of triggers when going out

Just like elite athletes practice visualization before a big event to calm their nerves and enhance their performance, those of us living with migraine can do the same thing before we go out into a new environment.

In this seven-minute visualization, you will imagine yourself going out to a new location surrounded by a protective bubble that will keep you safe from any harm.

By practicing feeling safe, you are training your brain to reduce fear and ultimately reduce your migraine symptoms when you encounter a new environment.
