The stress and strains of our always-connected lives can sometimes take us off course. GPS For The Soul can help you find your way back to balance.
GPS Guides are our way of showing you what works for others in the hopes that you can find out what works for yourself. Whether it's photos that relax you or make you smile, songs that bring you back to your heart, quotes or poems that bring you balance or meditative exercises that help you de-stress, we all have tricks that we use when we get bent out of shape. 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 harmony.
Nikki Boyer talks naps, laughter, massages and music. Check out her GPS Guide below.
On The Best Tools For Relaxing
Usually the tools involve someone else's hands rubbing me. I love massages and taking baths with Epsom Salts. I also listen to cheesy classical music ... it makes my brains relax.
On How To Unwind
The Serenity Prayer always helps me. Also, five deep breaths. If all else fails ... a giant glass of red wine with a little Feist or Regina Spektor in the background.
Sometime just filling your lungs completely helps you remember how awesome the human body is! Also, dancing to your favorite song in the middle of the living room.
Laughter and having a sense of humor about stressful moments. Perspective inspires me and allowing myself to look in on the drama as a third party. Most things are really NOT that big of a deal.
On The Power Of Naps
I believe that naps are underrated. Babies and old people take them ... so why shouldn't I? I believe checking out for a bit to recharge is good for the soul. If you can't disconnect at least take a breather and try to gain perspective on what's important and what's just a bunch noise.
