Release Anxiety and Embrace Peace in 5 Minutes (VIDEO)

Posted: 05/23/11 07:00 AM ET

I recently had one of those days where I felt overtired, overworked and over-cooked. Rather than succumb to my ego's desire to drink an espresso and charge forward with my work day, I chose to listen to my ~ing and take a fiver. Taking a fiver is an old-school Gabby tool that I turn to often. A fiver is the simple exercise of stepping away from whatever you're doing to take a five minute break and recalibrate your thoughts and energy. You can take five minutes for deep breathing, five minutes for a cup of tea, a five minute walk around the corner etc. It's that simple! Sometimes a fiver is all we need to invite spirit back into our day and allow a miraculous shift to occur. Today when you're ready for a fiver watch this vlog.
