I am doing this exercise to learn to relax at will. It's good for me mental like. Decent evidence base behind it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autogenic_training

You repeat certain phrases to yourself – and why use English? It'd be nice to gaelicise these beneficial words.

The phrases and my HALF-BAKED translations:

1. My right/left arm is getting limp and heavy/warm. Tá mo lámh/chos dheas/clé ag éiri trom/te. I'm struggling to find a good Irish word for limp/slack. This one is quite interesting.

2. My right/left arm is getting heavier/warmer and heavier/warmer. Tá mo lámh/chos dheas/clé ag éiri níos troime níos troime. I can drop the 'and' compared to English can't I?

3. My right arm is completely heavy/warm. Tá mo lámh/chos dheas/clé trom/te go h-iomlán. Does "te go h-iomlán" sound scorching and unpleasant? If so should I say something like 'teolaí' or 'bogthe'?

4. Both my arms and my legs are... Tá mo dhá lámh/chos ag... Have I got the grammar right here?

5. I feel supremely calm. Táim ar mo shuaimhneas amach is amach. Lots of ways to render this. Best one wins. "shuaimhneas go h-iomlán" is slightly alliterative

6. My chest feels warm and pleasant. Tá mo chliabh dea-te. I'm not sure the best word to use for 'pleasant' here – just 'deas' I suppose? Which verb would you prefer: 'tá' or 'móthaigh'?

7. My heartbeat is calm and steady. Tá mo chuisle ciúin??? sochma?? is seasta??? socair?? No idea here. And can I drop the 'is' or 'agus' and say "Tá mo chuisle sochma seasta" – "Tá mo chuisle shéimh is seasta" sounds pretty good to me (do I lenite the second adjective if two follow a feminine noun?)

8. My breathing is supremely calm. Maybe use the adjective séimh or mín here? And the noun análú.

9. My stomach is getting soft and warm. Tá mo bholg ag éiri bog is bogthe.

10. My forehead is cool. Tá m'éadan dea-fionnuar Have I got the grammar right?

GRMA, this could be a really lovely thing when it is done right.
