The stress and strain of constantly being connected can sometimes take your life -- and your well-being -- off course. GPS For The Soul can help you find your way back to balance.
GPS Guides are our way of showing you what has relieved others' stress in the hopes that you will be able to identify solutions that work for you. We all have de-stressing "secret weapons" that we pull out in times of tension or anxiety, whether they be photos that relax us or make us smile, songs that bring us back to our heart, quotes or poems that create a feeling of harmony, or meditative exercises that help us find a sense of silence and calm. We encourage you to look at the GPS Guide below, visit our other GPS Guides here, and share with us your own personal tips for finding peace, balance and tranquility.
Fitness adviser Lani Muelrath shares the quickest ways to restore balance in her GPS Guide below.
I like to go through the body for the fastest resurrection ever: A walk or other physical challenge, breathing, listening to restorative music, watching the sensations in my body as meditation -- even laughter is physical and works! These are my go-to avenues to center myself and restore equanimity. They are all proven ways to affect brain activity.
