HOW TO LET GO AND FIND MORE PEACE
Are you feeling stressed again today?
Focus carefully on what you’re feeling. Don’t numb it with distractions, but instead bring it further into your awareness.

Notice the tension in your body too, and also in your mind, that arises from this feeling.
Try relaxing the tense parts of your body. Then relax the tense parts of your mind. Do so by focusing on your breath: Close your eyes, breathe in and feel it, breathe out and feel it, again and again, until you feel more relaxed.

If you’ve been struggling to cope with the weight of what’s on your mind lately, it’s a strong sign that it’s time… to let GO!
At our annual live seminar, Think Better, Live Better, Marc and I guide attendees through this process of perspective change—and letting go through life’s twists and turns.
Truth be told, inner peace begins the moment you take a new breath and choose not to allow an uncontrollable event to dominate you in the present. You are not what happened to you. You are what you choose to become at this moment. Let go, breathe, and begin…
