4. Centering: Whether it's through meditation, yoga, mindfulness, tai chi, prayer or being in nature, centering restores your mind, body and soul. Anything that deflects you from the relentless, judgmental inner dialogue elicits the relaxation response, a brain state that is opposite of the body's stress response. When you realize that although you have thoughts, you are not your thoughts, you can get in touch with the peaceful center at your core and live creatively in the present moment.
