When the weather is gray, there is nothing like visualizing sunshine to lift your spirits!
Taking a few moments to bask in the sunshine (even when just inside your head) can go a long way in counteracting a gloomy and dark day/week/month/season.
Did you know that SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) is most common during the dark months of Fall and Winter? While a sunshine meditation might not cure SAD or replace your happy light, it surely can't hurt to allow your mind and body to soak up the mental image of sunshine!
