GPS Guide: Nhat Vuong Shares De-Stressing Tools

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.

We all have our own ways to de-stress. Below, Nhat Vuong shares a few of his personal techniques -- think you'll pick up any of his tips?

1. Hit a punching bag: A very good way to release stress -- and to not think about anything else for a while.
2. Dance in front of a mirror: And do it like no one is watching -- this will get you smiling!
3. Watch comedians on Youtube: This will bring immediate effects of joy.
