When I’m stressed I take five deep breaths and focus on my heart. I imagine things I am grateful for like my children, my husband and the ocean. I notice where I feel the stress and imagine the white light of love and gratitude going there. I release my fears to the Divine.
Other tactics: I take a salt bath, with chocolate! I go to bed early. I walk on a beach.
I've listed other tools that help inspire calm in me below. I hope some can do the same for you.

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.
Because no one knows better than you what helps you de-stress and tap into that place of peace inside yourself, it's important for you to create your very own GPS guide -- a personalized collection of whatever helps you course-correct. Email us at GPS@huffingtonpost.com and we'll set you up with your very own HuffPost blogger account to share your guide on the site. If you're already a blogger, we encourage you to upload your personal guide today. We can't wait to see what you have to share.
