In the video, he explains that people must start by ‘calming their bodies’ from ‘head to toe’.

He says: “Start by relaxing the muscles in your forehead.

“Relax your eyes, your cheeks, your jaw and focus on your breathing. Now go down to your neck and your shoulders.

“Make sure your shoulders are not tensed up. Drop them as low as you can and keep your arms loose by your side, including your hands and fingers.”

At this point, he says you should feel a ‘warm sensation’ going through your body.

He continues: “Take a deep breath and slowly exhale, relaxing your chest, your stomach, down to your thighs, knees, legs and feet.

“Again, imagine this warm sensation going down from your heart all the way to your toes.”

As this is all going on, Agustin says people remove any ‘stresses’ from their mind.

He suggests: “To do this, think of two scenarios.

“One – you’re lying in a canoe on a calm lake with nothing but a clear blue sky above you. Two – you’re lying in a black velvet hammock in a pitch-black.

“At any time when you start thinking of anything else or you start getting distracted, repeat these words for 10 seconds: ‘Don’t think, don’t think, don’t think’.”

Agustin explains that this might not be something that works for everyone straight away, and is something that should be practised every night for six weeks.
