  3. Now, you're swimming pool.

  4. You are in the water. You are swimming.

  5. The water is cold. Feel the cold.

  6. Listen to the people. People are splashing. They are laughing.

  7. You dive into the water. Everywhere is blue.

  8. Take another deep breath and breathe out.

  9. Open your eyes now. How do you feel? Free? Happy? Energetic? Tired?
