7 Stories to Find Your Center

7 Stories to Find Your Center

At the beginning of this year, we offered a 10 Day "Find Your Center" challenge. The overwhelming response reminded us here at S&H to take a moment and do simple things like breathe, dance, and even cry. Here are 7 stories from that challenge to inspire finding your center this weekend.

Let the Spirit Move You If you are coping with the challenges of everyday life—perhaps a tough day at work, the stress of parenting, a fight with your spouse—music can help you work through complex feelings.

Restorative Power of Tears Crying ought not to be something we outgrow. Deeply felt tears can be profoundly healing-at any age.

Move Your Body, Still Your Mind When you consider a practice of meditation, you probably envision yourself with eyes closed, sitting cross-legged and immobile. Yet many spiritual exercises use postures and movement as paths to contemplation.

Do Your Body Good Having a go-to move or two when you're feeling depleted or frenzied can have a profound effect not only on your body, but your mind and spirit. Here are 10 easy moves to relax and rejuvenate body and soul.

Practice Silence Have you considered bringing a practice of silence into your life? Whether it's a part of your day or you decide to deepen your commitment, you may be surprised what you discover about your surroundings and more importantly yourself.

Your Breath As writer Glen Schneider confesses, "Practicing 10 breaths has shown me how to stop, open my heart, and savor what I love in the world-to let in the good. My life has blossomed in ways I would never have thought possible."

Deepen Your Practice Our practices give us meaning, balance, and more. Nurture what you already do with 15 ways to deepen your practice.

We hope you join us for the next challenge and we'll leave you with this final thought:

"At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want."
-Lao Tzu
