GPS for the Soul: Stay Centered in a Hectic World

I’m thrilled to now be a blogger on The Huffington Post’s GPS for the Soul! In addition to being one of the lifestyle sections, GPS for the Soul is also an app for both iOS and Android. Here’s what it’s all about:

HuffPost’s GPS for the Soul app is based on two truths about human beings. First: We all have a centered place of wisdom, harmony and balance within us. Second: We’re all going to veer away from that place, again and again and again. What we need is a great course-correcting mechanism — a GPS for the Soul — to help us find our way back to that centered place, from which everything is possible.

Writers’ own guides are featured, and may become guides within the app. Here’s my first:

If I’m at my desk at work when I start feeling overwhelmed, I’ll begin hunching my shoulders closer to the computer monitor, causing me to take shallower breaths, heightening my feelings of anxiety. When I notice this happening, I sit up straight and drop my shoulders. I then take three slow, deliberate belly breaths. I can improve the rest of my day without even getting up from my desk!

    My center of wisdom harmony and balance all rests in the LORD and the face that I can trust Him for everything in my life.  It sure makes life easier.

    When life surrounds me, I find my rest and peace and comfort in HIM!  There is nothing else in the world like it.

    I completely agree. Correct breathing is a must for good health and a relaxed spirit. Our muscles and brain need good oxygenation!

    I’m in front of the computer for most of my day and I can feel my tense neck and shoulders, and I feel the same when I’m not in front of the screen, so I have to remind myself to RELAX and take a few deep breaths. It does do wonders to reset myself.

    Congratulations on being a Huff post contributor. I think it’s always a good idea to take a breathe when feeling overwhelmed. I think a lot of times we take on too much and it’s good to take a quick break.

    Wonderful to keep in mind. I like to go for a short walk – even if it’s just for 5 minutes, I feel so much better and ready to get working again.
